Co-directors Timothy Bill and Nigel Haarstad took the new Competitive Forensics Individual Events Speech Team to their first tournament this weekend at Berea College and have already brought home hardware. Here is a summary of their successful efforts:
The team took 2nd Place in the Parliamentary Debate Team Sweepstakes (Large School Division)!
Two of the three parliamentary debate teams made it to the outrounds. Abel Rodriguez and Jacob Kinman went to semifinals while Zach Shinall and Ryan Winstead made it to quarterfinals.
Abel Rodriguez also earned a 4th place parliamentary debate speaking award.
Finally Zach Shinall won Extemporaneous Speaking.
Congratulations to all of the team members. We look forward to hearing more about what they accomplish at future tournaments.
