On Friday, Jan. 23 thirteen students from Rockland High School participated in the annual Poetry Out Loud contest.

Each of the thirteen contestants recited two poems. They were joined by Justin Arena’s trio who provided musical interludes. When the judges’ decisions were announced, it was a senior sweep. Daniel Silva was awarded third place, Pearse McNally was awarded second place, and for the second year in a row Danielle Hill was awarded first place. Hill will be moving on to Southeastern Regionals on March 1st.

On behalf of Veritas Staff, we wish Dani good luck!
