Debate results

So the JCIB Varsity debate team didn't win any awards in Montgomery this past weekend, but you can't say they didn't enjoy themselves!

It was the first time any of the students have debated at the varsity level, so no-one was really disappointed that they didn't place in the tournament. Surely there will be many more opportunities to compete, and perhaps perform better. Three of the four students in the novice group won awards, and it was their first debate too, so that was quite an accomplishment.

I had the opportunity to judge a couple of debates between students of other competing schools. It was interesting; almost as if it were a competitive sports event, not a debate. They really take it seriously!
