Over spring break, the middle school’s forensics team competed in the Novice Nationals Debate Tournament in Georgia, adding to their already impressive season. Three members of the debate team, Pranav Reddy, grade 8, Sophia Luo, grade 7 and Lisa Liu, grade 7, traveled between March 28 and April 2 to compete against high school students at the tournament.
Reddy competed in the Lincoln-Douglas events, winning three matches, and adding to his already impressive year, which included a stand out performance at the UC Berkeley tournament earlier this year. The Liu/Luo policy team won two debates and are already preparing for the end of the year event in June.
The middle school debate teams and classes are currently being taught by Karina Momary. Momary, who is enjoying her first year with the teams, looks forward to building stronger and stronger forensics teams by encouraging the middle school teams to continue competing against high school teams. This is the middle school forensics team’s first year traveling to multiple tournaments.
