Debate

The debate team at CVHS has wrapped up a successful year and are preparing for an exciting next semester. They have gone to five tournaments and Freshmen Wyatt Tracy and Jaycee Sanders placed 4th at one tournament and 3rd at another. “It’s Jaycee and I’s first year and we have both learned and accomplished so much already,” says Tracy. The team worked very hard and all members achieved enough points to move up in rank. Although the seniors didn’t get to go to as many tournaments, Senior Tyler Vesey says his favorite tournament was, “This year in Pittsburg , when Jaycee and Wyatt started having fun doing debate.” The team agrees that they haven’t just gained the skill of debate, but also how to grow as a person. “Even if we didn’t win a round, as long as we had fun and learned something, it was always a win,” says Sanders. The experience of debate and waking up at 4-5am for tournaments formed bonds between the team. Senior Ashlynne Fontes said, “My best memories always have been the van rides to tournaments with my team. We are like one big family and always crack jokes together. I will miss this when I graduate this year.”
