The Kayhi Debate Drama and Forensics team had a strong performance at state placing 3rd out of 21 teams in the Forensics (speech) events.
Kayhi competed against 32 public forum debate teams and had the most speakers finish in the top 10.
Arick Mattson took first place in Public Forum Debate speaker points, and second in Humorous Interpretation out 64 and 23 participants respectively.
Chris Brown and Piper Cooper went undefeated in the public forum (4-0)–one of three teams out of the 32 who finished with that record.
While none of the Kayhi teams made it past the octofinals — sudden death where previous records and scores are disregarded — they did finish with the best overall debate record at the meet; all Kayhi teams finished at or above an even record.
