The WHS Varsity Debate team were given a BIG SEND OFF at WHS - the "Debaters" are State-Tournament Bound!! Devin Dickinson, Gabe Hyer, Austin Fink and Austin Harriger had all qualified earlier in the season at tournaments at Chaparral and Augusta.
Last month, the WHS Varsity Debate won first place at the 4-Speaker Debate Regionals in Parsons! In fact, the Crusaders earned a clean sweep victory with a 12-0 score!
Both "Affirmative" and "Negative" teams worked very hard and brought home 6 gold medals and a plaque from Parsons, proclaiming the Debate team as the Regional Champions for 2018!
Also at today's send off, Aidan Young and Rachel Lee as alternates and timekeepers. The team is coached by WHS Instructor Caitlin Hendrix.
GOOD LUCK @ STATE CRUSADERS!!
State Debate is being held at Fort Scott HS, tomorrow (Fri) and Saturday (Jan. 11-12)
