Debate Team Wins State Championship

January 13, 2019

The Independent Panther debate team won the 321A debate state championship on Saturday in Fort Scott. Alex Cline, Chase Farha and Peter Daood argued the affirmative. Edward Sturm, Malar Muthukumar and Josh Jacobsen argued the negative. The Panther debaters, coached by John Steere, finished with a 12-4 record and prevailed in a tightly fought contest over eight other schools who had qualified at regionals.

Also competing this weekend in the State Debate Tournament (2-speaker category) were Deena Eichhorn, Victoria George, Natalie Johnson, and Madison Martin.
