On January 12, SPA qualified two teams for the MSHSL State Debate Tournament at the Edison High School tournament. All schools were allowed two entries of two debaters and SPA qualified both of its pairs to be among the top 24 entries in the state. Congratulations to seniors Olivia McCauley and Kieran Singh and juniors Zach Dyar and Liam Will!
This is SPA's 22nd year (out of the last 23 years) qualifying for the State Tournament, and the Spartans have won 4 of the last 6 state tournaments. The MSHSL Debate tournament is the longest running state tournament, having been first held in 1900.
The State Tournament will take place at the University of Minnesota Law School on January 18-19, 2019. Good luck to our Spartan Debaters!
