Debate medals

Winfield High School freshmen debate team members Shelby Farnsworth, left, and America Sanchez placed sixth Sept. 21 in the El Dorado Invitational Novice/JV tournament. There were two pools with 15 novice teams each. The Winfield team received medals and a winning record for the tournament. This is the first time they have debated competitively. The topic this year is commercial and military arms sales, which requires a lot of reading and learning. They have studied debate order and the topic with after-school practices and signing up for tournaments. This year the WHS debate team will travel to open and more advanced tournaments with their seasoned team as well as getting novices’ experience with similarly skilled students.
