The SPHS Debate Team traveled with sponsor Ms. Broughton to Lakewood Ranch High School in November 2017 and then in December 2017 to Newsome High School. They competed well in both events and brought home the following trophies and awards.
From Lakewood Ranch High School they brought home three 2nd place trophies:
- Student Congress by IB freshman Jude Singleton and
- Duo Interpretation by IB sophomores Arielle Noah and Darshna Bhatt.
From Newsome High School in Gibsonton, these IB students came home with awards:
- Sophomore Jack McKyton for Presiding Officer for Student Congress
- Sophomore Lydia Silverstone for 3rd place in Student Congress
- Senior Julia Linkogle for 3rd place in Oral Interpretation
- Freshman Victor Xie for 2nd place in the Lincoln-Douglas Debate
Job well done!
