National Congressional Debate Semi-Finalists

Congratulations to the Congressional Debate Team on their 3rd place finish at the ICDA State Championship at Harper College. This was LT's best finish at state since 2007.
 
Three LT debaters finished the season in the top 10 and were named to the All-State team: Elle St. Arnaud (1st place), Angus Allan (5th place), and Ben Dreves Hunt (6th place). 
 
In February, LT also competed in the Harvard University National Speech & Debate Tournament and received the "Best New School Award." 
 
During the season, debaters Elle St. Arnaud, Chloe Lanspeary, Ben Dreves Hunt, and Angus Allan all received bids to attend the National HS Debate Championship at the University of Kentucky in April.  Good luck at Nationals!

Thanks to the following Congressional Debate Team students for representing at the Board of Education meeting: Angus Allan, Ben Dreves Hunt, Chloe Lanspeary, Elle St. Arnaud, Ayaan Baqai, Lily Grigsby, Blake McCracken, and Owen Grech.
