Debate team competes virtually

By Eduardo Andrade, Editor-in-Chief

The debate team competed last Saturday Jan. 23. Only two students, Aashi Chhabra, junior, and Ryan Nemnarine, junior, participated.

Chhabra, Speech Captain, placed 7th in her chamber in the Congressional Debate competition. It was her first time competing in Varsity Congress.

“Unfortunately, I did not receive an award for my placing as they only give awards to the top three competitors in every chamber,” said Chhabra.

Nemnarine participated in the Extemporaneous Speaking event, but failed to place at the competition.

“Debate is a great course for teambuilding and the development of skills that can be used in daily interactions,” said sophomore Kaitlyn Drew.
