Junior Vincent Jasso led the team by placing 6th place in the Senate and senior, Alex Haw was a finalist in the House of Representatives. Vincent Jasso earned North Pointe’s first ever outstanding legislation award, his written legislation. “Our goal going into this first tournament was that everyone would give at least one speech; this goal was not only achieved, but exceeded by some of the newest members of the team,” said Coach Richards. “We are excited for the season to get started, and this was a great start to what is expected to be a great year,” she added.
