Debate students compete at the first swing tourney of the year

The Lindale Speech and Debate team travelled to Foster High School in Richmond (just outside of Houston) for the first tournament of the year.  This was a swing tournament, which means they competed at two different tournaments at the same time.  Individual results are as follows:

1st Cross-Examination Debate – Robert McWhorter (’18) and Anthony Wyatt (’18)

1st Program of Oral Interpretation – Elizabeth Tagg (’18)

1st Program of Oral Interpretation – Elizabeth Tagg (’18) (She won both tournaments!)

4th Prose Interpretation – Elizabeth Tagg (’18) (She placed at both tournaments!)

5th Foreign Extemporaneous Speaking – Evan Bewersdorf (’18)
