The Prep’s Speech and Debate team combined forces to win 3rd place team sweepstakes at McClintock High School Speech and Debate Invitational. The team is proud of this finish as they beat out 30 of the largest schools in Arizona to accomplish this team award. Special recognition goes out to Zach Hugo who was an event champion two weeks in as he placed first in Poetry Interpretation at Red Mountain and at McClintock. “I am very proud of the students this week,” said Coach LeAnn Richards. “Winning a team sweepstakes trophy at these large tournaments is no small feat,” she added.
