The Kayhi DDF team performed well this past weekend at their annual home meet.
Piper Cooper and Chris Brown made it to the final debate, but fell to Ella Lubin and Andurs Marius of Sitka High School. Cooper also placed first in Original Oration.
Arick Mattson placed first in Humorous Interpretation, making it three consecutive placements for first in that event this year. Frances Barry and Thomas Brooks took first in the Duo Interpretation event. Brandon Roof took second in Expository Speaking.
With the state competition right around the corner, the debaters are wasting no time in preparing for it.
“We know what we have cut out for us,” said Barry. “We have seen which arguments worked, which ones didn’t, and what we can do to improve our cases. In the month to come, we’ll be refining, tweaking, and researching more.”
