Speech and Debate Team Success

The Speech and Debate team participated in four weekend tournament so far this fall, including one last weekend at Sequoyah High School.  Here, one of our students, Shubhang Arasanapalli, received co-champion in varsity Lincoln-Douglas and state bid.  We had 9 participants, including a freshman team in public forum who went to their first tournament.


Two weeks ago, at North Hall, SFHS saw our greatest success, with every student placing in their event category. Sudhan Chitgopkar also received 1st place in varsity Public Forum.  This tournament also involved a few first timers and a veteran speech student, Belen Onwunali, placing for the first time in a tournament.


Additionally, we competed at John’s Creek and Johnson High School earlier in the season and had several participants receive awards from those tournaments.
