NORFOLK— In their 20th time at the NSAA State Play Production Championships, the Loup City Play Production Team is the Class C2 runner-up in 2020.
Creighton took the top spot in Norfolk on Thursday, December 10 in Class C2 picking up first-place votes from two of the three judges and earning 178 points. According to the NSAA, this was the first time Creighton has been to the state championships in over a decade having last qualified in 2009 where they were runner-up after winning the state title in 2008 in Class C1.
It was a close battle for second place as Loup City was able to edge out Elmwood-Murdock by a single point. Loup City earned 177 points and a first-place vote from one judge which was enough to give them the runner-up trophy.
While a state championship continues to elude Loup City, the play production program has placed in the top three every year since 2014. Individual performers have also been recognized a number of times for Loup City dating back to 1987 when KCNI/KBBN’s Brent Apperson was recognized.
