Debate News!

The Debate Team has had a great two weeks! 

On Saturday, February 3rd, varsity debate team Abigail Fitzgibbon and Juliette Kelly attended the NCFL qualifier tournament in Shrewsbury, MA, competing in the Public Forum format. They received a record which qualified them for the CFL national tournament, which will take place this May in Washington D.C. The team was debating the resolution: Resolved: The United States should abolish the capital gains tax. Just one week before, the varsity team Lena Brzezinski and August Kahle attended the NSDA qualifier tournament debating the resolution: Resolved: Spain should grant Catalonia its independence. Kahle and Brzezinski achieved a record of 4-2 and made it to the final break round of the tournament, making the team alternates for NSDA Nationals.
