HS Speech & Debate at Prep Schools Congress

Seniors dominated the Speech and Debate team’s first tournament outing of the year. The Congressional Debate competition began at Scottsdale Prep with over 200 entries and when the final round of 21 was announced, 5 North Pointe students were on that list! “Considering we had 6 entries and 5 of them made it to finals, I couldn’t be happier with the results,” said Coach Richards. “This year’s Speech and Debate team has five seniors who started as freshmen and I expect this to be the best year for all the seniors; this is their year to shine,” added Richards. Zach Hugo was the top Prep finisher, placing third and winning a coveted gavel for placing in the top 6.
