Five members of the Kayhi Debate Team placed first at Mt. Edgecumbe last weekend in the Kings’ first debate meet of the season. Junior Piper Cooper placed first in three events.
“I felt really great about this first meet.” said Cooper. “My partner and I worked really well together and it turned out to be the best meet I’ve had. I’m happy with how well the first meet went, not only personally, but overall with the team, in such a short amount of time to prepare.”
Kayhi debate has a month before their next meet in November.
