Backed by choir teacher John Lorentzen on piano, singers Ciara Westhoven (left), Hayley Robinson (right) and Lavee Hess (not pictured) croon “Coming Home,” a tribute to Dakota Leach, at the first of two Sequim High School Talent Show performances on March 16. Leach, an SHS sophomore, died in September at age 15. The singing trio took home the judges’ top honors that night, with poet Patrick Carpenter taking second place and soloist Hess earning third. On Saturday night, Frank Catelli, Mack Grinnell and other emcees took home the People’s Choice award.
