SA Debate had a successful weekend at the second league debate tournament of the year, hosted at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill. Our team squared up against teams from across the Bay Area, and each SA team that participated won at least one of their debates!
In varsity debate, the team of Adri Kornfein '21 and Miron English '21 earned a 2-1 winning record. The team of Jack Jacobs '22 and Mateo Mijares '22 impressed their judges and won all of their debates, leaving the tournament with the undefeated trophy. Jack and Mateo were one of just two undefeated teams in their entire division.
In novice debate, Sierra Greene '22 and Fiona Smith '22 debated at their first tournament, and earned an impressive 2-1 winning record.
Huge thanks to Luna Michelis '21, Micaela Peavey '20, and Izzy Cohen '20 for judging at the tournament! Next up, the speech team heads to the Santa Clara University Invitational.
