Northland Debaters Excel Nationally & Locally

Congratulations to the Northland Christian Debate team for their success so far this season! The 30 member team has competed in tournaments across the city of Houston, throughout Texas and in California and has had fantastic results.

Locally, the team just won the Cy-Lakes Debate Tournament where they ranked first out of 37 private and public schools. Jackson Winder, Sydney O'Connell and Austin Broussard all won their events; additionally, Sydney and Jackson also completed their TFA State qualification. Several students finaled in their events and brought home hardware! At the Klein tournament, the team also saw great success with the team placing 3rd overall. Maddie Leard and Claire Schulter qualified to TFA State as sophomores; Camille Downey, Maddie Leard, Claire Schulter and Gianna Zagone also won their events. The team competes again this weekend at Grand Oaks High School in the Woodlands. 

Nationally, the team has already started the year out strong. Jack Quisenberry and Austin Broussard were both invited to compete at the Greenhill Round Robin, one of the most prestigious competitions in the country that attracts teams from all over the nation. Jack was also invited to compete at the Voices Round Robin in San Jose, California due to his success this year. For the fifth time, NCS has had students selected to be part of the National Debate team. Team USA is a team comprised of 12 students from all over the country that represent the United States in international competitions. Elyse Dewbre has been selected to be on this team again this year and will travel to Germany and Singapore competing for the US. Claire Schulter was also selected as a member of the Development Team, a training team for Team USA. She will compete domestically representing the United States. We look forward to more national success as the team competes in Minnesota in November!

We are proud of our students successes so far and look forward to the rest of the season!
