Coed Varsity Debate · Debate UPDATE!


The Speech and Debate Team had a great day at the Philadelphia Catholic Forensic League Tournament at Unionville High School on Saturday!  Two juniors, three sophomores, and four freshmen represented Tennent at our team’s first tournament of the season.  The tournament featured 115 competitors from 14 schools.  Our novices, although they were quite nervous about their first tournament, exhibited high levels of enthusiasm and maintained positive attitudes throughout the day.  They also shared that the tournament was a worthwhile learning experience and are already looking forward to their next tournament!
Tennent had an outstanding showing in JV Congress!  Five of the eight JV Congress competitors were Tennent students, and our team earned 1st Place in JV Congress Sweepstakes!  I am pleased to share the following individual student achievements:
  • sophomore Juliette Kolbe: 1st Place in JV Congress
  • sophomore Michela Allen: 3rd Place in JV Congress
  • freshman Skylar Cataldi: 4th Place in JV Congress
  • sophomore Olivia McLaughlin: 3rd Place in JV Prose
Our team is looking forward to competing in the Rhetorical Battle of Gettysburg Invitational on October 19!
Thanks for your support of our team!
