SPA debate begins season with local and national wins
Posted 09/27/2018 06:32PM

The SPA debate team has begun the 2018-19 season with two successful tournaments.

The team of seniors Olivia McCauley and Kieran Singh attended a national invitational tournament, featuring outstanding debaters from around the country. Olivia and Kieran won 5 of 6 of their preliminary debates and then proceeded through double-octofinals, octofinals, quarterfinals and made it to the semi-finals. "This is the best SPA has ever done in this tournament," says debate coach Tom Fones, "and ranks Olivia and Keiran among the best debaters in the country."

The Wayzata tournament on September 22 featured nearly 800 students from 50 schools, and SPA's young debaters had an excellent showing here as well. Freshmen debaters Nafisa Hagi Aden, Will Anderson, Spencer Burris-Brown and Per Johnson, along with juniors Sameer Bijwadia, Jack Guinan, and Asher Sobotka all won awards.

Congratulations to our Spartan debaters!
