Knight Debate

On Friday and Saturday, January 15-16, Knights Debaters closed their season at the 2-speaker 3-2-1A State Championship competing against 25 teams from 14 schools.

Seven students qualified for State, but only six could compete. Jazmin Jasso Rodriguez remained in reserve. Noah Martin and Nailea Mata took 18th place.

The other two teams won the elimination rounds and became the two finalists of the Championship. Sophomore first-year debaters Stevie Silverman and Kiera Cochran, with a score of 6-2, took the runner-up position.

Senior fourth-year debaters Lily Perring and Sara Del Real went undefeated and became the 2021 State Champions. Congratulations to Knights Debate!
