From Dr. Mooney:
Four members of the Debate Team participated in the Monsignor Lyons Forensics Tournament at Delone Catholic High School on Saturday. Chris and I are excited to share the following results of an epic day for Tennent Debate:
- 1st Place in Varsity Extemporaneous Speaking
- 3rd Place in Varsity Impromptu
- 1st Place in Varsity Lincoln-Douglas Debate
- 4th Place in Varsity Oral Interpretation
- 6th Place in Varsity Impromptu
- 1st Place in Novice Lincoln-Douglas Debate
Our team also earned 4th Place in Sweepstakes! In addition to awards for individual speech and debate events, Delone Catholic presents two special awards at this tournament to recognize the top speech and debate competitors. The recipients of this year’s special awards are Tennent students! Ethan Knox earned the Janet Blettner Speech Award and Nick Simila earned the Mary C. Furlong Award. Photos are attached.
Ethan, Nick, Ethan, and Juliana are looking forward to facilitating a debate workshop with me and Chris tomorrow at Swan Way for our elementary gifted students. Our team has a tournament on Wednesday at Wissahickon High School and another tournament at La Salle College High School on Saturday.
Thanks for your support of our team!
