The Webb City speech and debate team won first place in debate sweepstakes and third place sweeps in individual events last weekend at the Fair Grove tournament.
Webb City was the champion in Duo, POI, and Public Forum Debate.
Overall, the team won a total of 31 trophies and medals.
Coach Tiffany Bolin notes that seven students also earned new NSDA degrees.
Two hundred judges are needed Jan. 20-21 for Webb City High School’s 58th annual Winter Classic Speech and Debate Tournament.
“Without support from staff and community members like you, our team would be unable to take advantage of their many opportunities to reach some great achievements, including competition on the national and international level,” says coach Tiffany Bolin.
“We know your time is valuable and your schedules are already packed full; as a small token of our gratitude, we will offer a hospitality room for our judges, and it looks to be a great selection of food both days of the tournament. Even just one round of judging goes a long way to help make our tournament and our program a success.
The 8 to 10 a.m. time slot on Saturday morning is in the greatest need of judges.
