The Christ the King Speech & Debate Team is starting the season strong with some great individual and team wins over the first two tournaments.
At the first BQCFL league tournament on October 12, the team was led by award winning individual performances by Gregory Jans, Elvis Soto, Christian Wong, Krystian Makocki, and Samantha Fernandes. At that tournament Gregory and Elvis were the first place champions of varsity PF Debate even though they were competing up a level from their Intermediate level and Samantha debuted as Intermediate and placed even though she qualifies as novice.
On October 26th the Speech and Debate Teams excelled at the 2nd league tournament, taking overall 4th place in Speech, 3rd place in Student Congress, and were the first place overall champions in Debate. This week even more CK competitors received awards including Krystian Makocki, Diego Espada, Ian Baksh, Gregory Jans, Elvis Soto, Samantha Fernandes, JeanPierre Paniagua, and Isabelle Baksh.
We’re very proud of all of our competitors, especially all of the first time speakers that have debuted the past two tournaments and we’re looking forward to a very successful year!
