Speech and Debate prepare for state competition
Speech and Debate are competing at the Texas Forensic Association (TFA) state from Thursday, March 9 to Saturday, March 11 in Plano, Texas.
They will be taking 18 kids that qualified for the tournament by accumulating “state points” from local and college tournaments across the state.
“I think the amount of kids we’re taking reflects the amount of hard work and dedication our program has put in over the year,” sophomore Wyatt Beere said.
Texas is one of most competitive states in the country, and they want to show that they can compete with the top performers and debaters.
“I think we have a few people that could go really far,” sophomore Maggie Davis said.
They have worked this whole year to better their performance, speaking, and critical thinking skills.
“We have been preparing for so long,” junior Morgan Rodriguez said. “But I think state is the most important time to showcase the Churchill work ethic and talent to competitors all across the state.” By Nathan Kleffner
