We couldn’t be more proud of our Garfield debaters after the end of this weekend. They participated in their first National Circuit tournament, facing a whole new level of difficult competition, and did incredibly well! For those that care about numbers, the teams came away with the following records:

  • Stella and Luke, 4-2, broke to partial double octofinals
  • Petra and Hannah, 3-3
  • Sungchan and Griffin, 3-3
  • Mari and Carter, 2-4

Even more importantly, in my opinion, is that we had a chance to do a lot of team bonding, successfully got through our first overnight trip, and learned a lot of new things. Our experience at Gonzaga proved that we are ready to be not only a great debate team in Washington state, but one that is ready for competition at a national level!
