Among ACP’s many sports and clubs, Speech and Debate is one of the most prominent. Coached by Mr. Rumsey, our Speech and Debate Team has been very successful since it formed in 2016, and this year is no different.

Last weekend, October 20th-21st, our school’s Speech and Debate Team participated in the Red Mountain Speech and Debate Tournament. As a school, the team took second place in the big school division, not to mention the many individual awards the debaters placed in as well. Listed below are the individual debaters who placed in the top 4:

  • Natasha Zimmerman won 1st place for the Informative Speech
  • Yoojin Han won 1st place for the Original Oratory
  • Zoe Soderquist placed 2nd place for the Novice Lincoln Douglas Debate
  • Yoojin Han and Shannon McKenna together placed 2nd place for the Novice Public Forum Debate
  • Skylar Hudson and Ananya Lakhotia together placed 2nd place in Duet Acting
  • Nik Pearce placed 3rd place for the Varsity Lincoln Douglas Debate
  • Sharmila Nimbkar placed 4th place in the Informative Speech category
  • Orchee Syed and Nicole Lee together placed 4th in Duet Acting

Following a such a successful first tournament, our Knights are in need of a huge congratulations for achieving so much. Congrats to all the debaters and good luck in future tournaments! To see more of our Speech and Debate Team, check out Mr. Rumsey’s YouTube channel @ paparumz.
