The Kayhi Debate team traveled to Juneau for there 2nd meet of the year. Senior Chris Brown placed 1st in Extemporaneous Speaking.
Coach Dave Mitchel was very impressed with the students this meet.
Overall, the students performed very well and improved a great deal from the first meet,¨ Mitchel said. “They only had 3 weeks of turnaround between meet, and with a new debate topic, speech, and drama pieces recited by memory, they were very busy.¨
Many of the DDF students agree that this was the most important debate meet of the season.
“This meet was really important for two big reasons,” Junior Dametre Martin said. “It’s the first meet in which everybody had memorized pieces and was working on their performance as well as it was the first meet to actually scope out the competition in your events.”
“All the Kayhi DDF students stepped up to the challenge and have really worked hard to be prepared for this meet,¨ said Mitchel. ¨I was pleased with the effort, and our improvement overall.”
The Kayhi DDF team will travel to Sitka for their next meet in December.
