Last weekend, seniors Adnan Askari and Ben Konstan traveled to Madison, Wisconsin for the Badgerland Debate Tournament to compete against some of the best debate teams in the nation. After tough competition, they successfully reached the championship debate, with both Askari and Konstan being named the tournament's first and second place overall speakers, respectively. With their impressive performance, Askari and Konstan have successfully qualified to the prestigious Tournament of Champions to be held next year.
In addition, on November 8, SPA qualified 3 of the 5 students representing Central Minnesota at the national Student Congress in June 2018 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Ethan Asis '19, Kieran Singh '19, and Ned Laird-Raylor '18 qualified among 94 entries from numerous high schools.
Congratulations Spartan Debate!
