Four Kayhi debaters place in the top three in three events this past weekend in Sitka. Arick Mattson took first in HumorousInterpreation, Frances Barry placed second in Extemporaneous Speaking, and Piper Cooper and Chris Brown (5-1) placed third in the Public Forum Debate.
Coach David Mitchell was very pleased with the Kayhi’s performance. Kayhi debaters took 12 of the top 20 speaker points spots.
“There was nothing in the preparation or performance that was at fault,” said Mitchell. “Sometimes it is just the luck of the draw regarding the match-ups and the judging. By the third meet everyone knows what they are doing and there is less separation between the top spots.”
The next meet will be hosted by Kayhi on Jan. 19.
