The Kayhi Drama, Debate, and Forensics team is travelling to Thunder Mountain to compete in their first regional meet of the season on Friday.
Head Coach Dave Mitchell said he is looking forward for the first meet.
“The first meet is always unique in that it’s mostly focused for training and preparing first-year debate students in getting them knowledgeable, and making them comfortable with debate,” said Mitchell. “In terms of first year debate students, we just have a lot of really sharp kids who have joined. They will learn from the seniors and returning students, make some huge strides, and hopefully be able to compete at a high level by the end of the season.”
Co-captain, Frances Barry said she is looking forward to seeing the new members of the team see what DDF is all about.
“The first meet is always exciting. You go with all these first year students who don’t really know anything about DDF, and then they go and actually see what DDF is and what all the events are,” said Barry. “They also see how exhausting it is as well.”
Barry said she sees Kayhi maintaining their good performance from past seasons.
“I think we will continue our path in being one of the best overall teams in Southeast”
