MS Debate Update

On Saturday, January 25th, over 35 MS students debated at two separate events in our MS Public Debate League, one of which was hosted by Hackley. Though we have a lot of new and younger debaters who are still learning the ropes, one of our 8th grade teams placed 3rd at one of the events and we earned 3rd place overall as a school at the other.

8th graders Harper K. and Jad B., earned 2nd place speaker awards at each respective tournament, missing the gavel by a few points. Spencer O., Tommy T., and Philip M. also earned speaker awards for their performance during the event.

Overall, our team continues to grow with a huge influx of 5th and 6th graders in the program this year. Our next event is scheduled for March 7th, 2020.
