Tennent’s Speech and Debate Team had a wonderful day at Saturday’s Pennsylvania High School Speech League District 12 State Qualifier Tournament at Gwynedd Mercy Academy! Congratulations to our team’s District 12 tournament champions who will be representing Tennent in main events at the Pennsylvania State Tournament at Bloomsburg University in March:
Nick Simila, Lincoln-Douglas Debate
Ethan Baker, Oral Interpretation of Poetry
Vicki Cannon and Justin Glass, Policy Debate
Also qualifying for the state tournament are Sierra Marelia (2nd Place in Lincoln-Douglas Debate) and Emma Weinstein (2nd Place in Oral Interpretation of Poetry). Michela Allen captured 3rd Place in Senate (and is now the first alternate for Senate) and will be competing in Congress/House at the state tournament. Four additional students will also be joining us for competition at the state tournament: Evan Miller in Extemporaneous Debate, Juliette Kolbe and Lucas Kimbrough in News Broadcasting, and Sofia Siravo in Impromptu. I’m very excited that eleven of the sixteen members of the Speech and Debate Team have this opportunity to compete at the state level!
Best wishes to our team in this Saturday’s PCFL Varsity Finals/National Qualifier at Pennsbury East!
**Additional highlights from our season are forthcoming. I wanted to share the BIG news first!
Thanks for your support of our team!
