Beach Forensics Continued Building Its MomentumNovember 23, 2020
Beach Forensics continued building its momentum over another few busy weekends of competition. Two weekends ago, the team of Benjamin Robbins and Samra Tekle finished as finalists in Junior British Parliamentary Debate at the Mahaffey Memorial Tournament. That same weekend, Rachel Thibodeaux finished as a finalist in the rookie division at the American Debate Association Fall Championship. Thibodeaux advanced to the elimination debates as the 4th seed, and was recognized as the top individual speaker at the tournament – Thibodeaux’s fourth consecutive 1st place speaker finish!
Last weekend, the team competed at Diablo Valley College. Rebecca Cantor finished in 2nd place in novice After Dinner Speaking. The team of Sebastian Chavez and Rachel Thibodeaux advanced to the Elite 8 in Open Parliamentary Debate.
Stay tuned for more updates! Beach Forensics will round out the semester with several back-to-back tournaments, and we hope to keep our momentum going strong!
