The HPA Debate Squad competed in-person at the Tri-League Tournament held at Poly on Saturday. Our teams had a great record overall giving the school a third-place trophy. The team of James W., Matthew M., and Diya K. took 12th place with a 3-1 record. 

Diya also took a 9th place speaker trophy and James took 35th. 

Our other teams did a great job as well and included:

A special thanks to Rebecca Taft, Irma Hardjakusumah, and Nathan Lee for volunteering to judge. As well thank you to Purvi Patel for helping out on Saturday with logistics and supporting the team.
