Kayhi placed first in two events, and made it to the final debate this past weekend in Skagway. Co-captain Piper Cooper and senior debater Arick Mattson placed first in Original Oration and Humorous Interpretation respectively.
Frances Barry and Chris Brown (5-1) took second in the final debate losing to Sitka. Co-captain Frances Barry believes she and her partner did well given the circumstances
“Chris and I had to argue the negative for the final debate, and we had never done at the meet,” said Barry. “Given that, I think we did a lot better than I expected at first.”
The next meet will be held in Sitka in December.
