Debat Squad Finishes Year!

by Gintaras Valiulis

High Point’s debate squad finished the season with two weekends of tournaments. The National Championship was held online with students competing on both Saturday, April 30th, and Sunday May 1st. Our teams debated both sides of each proposition:

  • Minors should not be tried as adults.
  • The US should establish a program of de-extinction for the Christmas Island rat.
  • NATO does more harm than good.

Our teams were:

  • James W., Matthew M., and Diya K.
  • Reece L., Ethan C., and Grant Y.
  • Lauren L., Julia L., and Henry M.

On Saturday, May 7th, High Point competed at an in-person tournament hosted by Oakwood. Julia L., Fuming Y., Reece L., and Ethan C. competed. 

At the Oakwood Tournament, HPA took a third place trophy.

This concludes the our season for this year and HPA’s squad is looking good for next year.
