Loup City Finishes Runner-Up At The Class C2 NSAA Play Production State Championships

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.
