Debate Duo Named Co-Champions at National Tournament

A pair of Upper School students are among the leaders in the state of Texas for Tournament of Champions bids.

The debate team attended the Katy Taylor Tournament, a national debate tournament held on November 15-16. Sophomore Brooke Blanton and senior Sylvia Duarte finished prelims 3-2 and were named as co-champions of the tournament along with another team. As a result of their finish, the pair have now earned their 3rd Tournament of Champions bid, earning the most bids of any individual team in Houston so far, and tied for most in the state of Texas!
