Debate Team Departs for Novice State Championship Tournament

Madison Dalton, Assistant Student Life Editor

On April 20th and 21st the WHS Debate team will be attending the Florida Forensic League Novice State Championship Tournament at North Miami High School.  This annual tournament is intended solely for novice competitors.  It therefore presents an excellent opportunity for first-year debaters to showcase the skills they’ve learned in the debate sphere thus far.  Many WHS students are registered to attend the tournament for events ranging anywhere from mock Congress sessions to one-on-one moral and philosophical debates.  Considering the team’s past success at last year’s Novice State tournament and its recent competitive achievements, many debaters are hoping for a winning weekend.
