GetLit's Classic Slam

April 20, 2017

For a sixth year, ERHS participated in GetLit's Classic Slam at the Los Angeles Theater Center in downtown LA. More than 20 schools were involved in Quarter and Semifinals on each of two days. ERHS brought a team of 6 students, plus about 40 more to root them on. We had one returning poet from last year's team, and the rest were new additions. Marcus James returned to ERHS this year to take on many of the coaching duties. ERHS won the Quarterfinals (as we did last year) and scored a perfect score of 33 points with our first-ever group poem. The poets performed well in the Semifinals and placed second, but only the top team could go on to the Finals.

Coaches: Mr. Sorenson, Mrs. Chodos

Team: Sol Rodriguez, Nayeli Hernandez, Margarita Gutierrez, Kathryn Mota, Esmeralda Barajas, and Marina Love Chavez.
