Coed Varsity Debate · Debate Dazzles at Davis

The Park City High School Debate team again did us proud by placing at least one team in the top 5 in almost every event we entered at the Davis Dart. The tournament had almost 40 schools, mostly 4A and 5A, who brought their best debaters to this final tournament before Region competitions. We took a smaller group than usual and faced some very good debaters and speakers, yet we still performed well.

Some highlights:

National Extemp:  In a deep field of 62 entrants, Jenny Burgess tied for 9th place and Carter Thompson (in his first time in Open competition) tied for 8th place.

Original Oratory: In another deep field of 79 entrants, Adam Herbst tied for 6th place.

Duo Interp:  Alice Beukema/Krissy Brian took 4th place overall.

Student Congress:  Christian Gordon finished in the top 5 in his Congress house.

Lincoln-Douglas:  There were 70 entries in this competitive event; Zach Primo took 10th place while Teia Swan took 3rd place!

Public Forum:  In this competitive debate event with 54 entries, Kyle Haas & Reese Adams took 2nd place.

Policy debate: Dylan Wolfe & Kieran Ahern finished in 10th place while Robbie Allison & Serena Haas took 3rd place!

The Miners will host the Region 10 tournament on Saturday, February 25th.
