Jacob Weckesser was promoted from novice Congressional Debate to JV Congressional Debate and placed 6th earning yet another medal in that event.
Stephanie Paredes won all of her rounds of JV Lincoln Douglas debate and advanced to quarter finals earning her a medal in a field of over 80 individual entries. She also placed second in her rounds of Original Oratory, a varsity event.
Tevin Stewart placed 2nd and 4th in his Foreign Extemporaneous Speech rounds.
The team welcomed Giovanni Martinez, a senior, as their newest member. Giovanni competed for the Wolves for the first time in Impromptu speaking.
We would like to that Ross and Tommie Weckesser and Ted W. for their continued support of the Basic Academy Debate team. Your time donated as judges, and assistance with food and team camaraderie are greatly appreciated. Without you, we could not compete. Thank you again.
The team heads to the Golden Desert League Individual Events and Congress Competition next week at Foothill. Go Wolves!
