Safa does it again, nearly!

This afternoon was the last debate meet for the 2007-08 school year. The topic was universal health care, something I have also studied in some depth in the past. I didn't get to attend the actual debates, but made it there for the awards. Safa placed second in the Birmingham area middle school division, by only one point, a 348, to the winner's 349. Of course in our eyes she is a winner. This is her first year, and she came second to an 8th grade student who has been debating for 3 years, so that's awesome. Overall Hewitt won in both the high school and middle school levels, securing 33 out of 36 possible wins. We had a strong team this year, but among all Hewitt students participating, only Safa ranked among the top ten.
