A Successful Debate Team Season

While November has been a busy month on the debate calendar, the York School debaters continue with their successful season. On Tuesday, the 21st of November, coaches Grace Nolan and Shannon Barber took four debaters to Country Day School to participate in the Provincial Qualifier for the National Public Speaking Championships. The students had to compete in four categories - debate, impromptu speaking, persuasive speaking and interpretive reading. When the results were tallied, Georgia Samuel and Ben Singer tied for fifth in Debate, Ben Singer was 6th in persuasive speaking and Ryan Cho was 6th in Interpretive Reading. Overall, Ben Singer finished 7th and Ryan Cho finished 9th, guaranteeing them spots at the Senior National Public Speaking Championships in Winnipeg in February.

In addition to Ben and Ryan's success, debaters Sean Lavery and Jack Evanowich will be competing at Selwyn House in Montreal at the annual National Oxford Cup Championships. At this tournament, Sean and Jack will be competing amongst the best debaters in the country to earn a spot at the International Oxford Cup in England in March.

Congratulations and best of luck, debaters!
