We are very proud to announce that our MS division of our debate team just competed in their first tournament last Saturday and our debate coach Alex was blown away by their performance. Each team debated 3 rounds and ended up with a 1-2 record. The losses were very close and all debaters scored very high in speaker points, (26-28 points out of a possible 30). In addition, two of these near losses were against the 2nd and 3rd place teams respectively.
Out students showed great sportsmanship and debated every round with zeal. They had to give 4 minute speeches, (sometimes with no preparation), use reliable sources, and be part of cross examination rounds. They never faltered or cracked under pressure and they have come very far in the few weeks since we’ve started our team.
Our HS debaters compete this upcoming Sat the 12th!
