Reha Patel Places 1st in Notice Lincoln-Douglas Debate
Last weekend, Speech and Debate attended the Sunvitational National Circuit three-day tournament.
This tournament was highly competitive and attended by 660 competitors from 113 schools in 24 states.
Reha Patel came in 1st Place in Novice Lincoln-Douglas debate! She is not only the first LD debater from HT to make it to the elimination rounds of Sunvitational, but also the first debater to make it to the final round at any national circuit tournament.
Brianna and Brooke Ramnath in Duo Interp also made it further than any prior HT speech or interp competitor, and received a rank of first in one of their rounds, but unfortunately missed the finals by one point.
We were also excited to have HT debate alum, Emily Cleveland (Class of 2019), judge for us this weekend.
