It looks as though Ms. Otto may not be joining us in our jouney to NCFL Nationals or NFL Nationals. I'll let her explain her reasons, at her leisure, if she so wishes.
This does mean that alternates may be advancing to nationals. Quentin Johnson was next-out for KCFL in extemp, taking fourth place after myself, Ms. Otto, and Mr. Stroup. But who is next-out in USX for NFL? Ariel Perkins already has a bid in USX, but she took fourth place I believe. So who's going if Ms. Otto can't?
If I remember correctly, the KYNFL finalists in USX were:
Courtney Otto - may not go
Brice Acree - IX
Spencer Greenhaulgh - Congress
Chelsea Darnell - Congress
Ariel Perkins - USX
Ashley Adkins - IX
