HARTINGTON — A.J. Johnson has been winning state titles in One Act since before Hartington and Newcastle combined into one school.
In fact, Hartington has won the state title in either Class C1 or C2 since 2011.
This year, the Wildcats will head to Norfolk to compete for the state championship for the sixth straight year.
Johnson admits the students feel pressure, but mainly because they want to live up to and continue the tradition of past years.
“I just think it helps that the kids won’t be surprised by anything [at state],” says Johnson. “It won’t be a new experience for them. They understand what they have to do and how they have to adjust.”
