Marlborough's Lincoln-Douglas Debate Team Ends a Strong Season
Congratulations to the Lincoln-Douglas Debate Team on an outstanding competitive season.
Last weekend the Middle School Debate Team performed extremely well in the Middle School State Tournament at CSU Los Angeles, achieving a 57% winning rate among top competition in the state. Sadie M. '22, Sofia S-T. '21, Sonora R. '21, and Bella W. '21 achieved winning records, and SaraMae T. '22 achieved an undefeated 5-0 record in the preliminaries and reached the Quarterfinal elimination round!
Over the course of the year both Upper and Middle School students competed in 745 competitive debate rounds (113 more rounds that last year) spread over 29 tournaments, comprising more than 61 competition days. In all, our students spent 1,297.5 hours competitively debating, or 54 full days! And these figures don't include the time spent practicing and researching at school and at home.
Congratulations to our student debaters and debate program faculty!
