Coed Varsity Debate · Final Debate

From Dr. Mooney and Mr. Berdnik:

Members of the Debate Team attended the Southeastern Pennsylvania Debate League Banquet on Monday evening with their families and coaches.  In addition to earning 3rd Place in Overall Sweepstakes, Tennent is this year’s recipient of the Carl Grecco Rotating Plaque.  This plaque, awarded to our school based on our team’s accumulated sweepstakes points, will remain on display at Tennent for the next year.


Team captain Ethan Knox and assistant debate captain Nick Simila earned 1st Place in Policy Debate.  This is the second consecutive year that Nick and Ethan captured this award.  Nick has earned 1st Place in Policy Debate in this league for the past three seasons!  Sophomore Jessica Robison earned 2nd Place in Big Questions Debate, assistant speech captain Ethan Baker 3rd Place in Oral Interpretation, and sophomore Juliana Whitley 4th Place in Dramatic Performance.  Freshman Justin Glass captured 5th Place and freshman John Campbell 6th Place in Big Questions Debate.  Freshman Olivia McLaughlin and sophomore Jessica Robison were quarterfinalists in Policy Debate.

Congratulations to our team on a very successful season, and good luck in tomorrow’s Big Questions tournament at Council Rock North!

As always, thanks for your support of our team!
