2019 Brentwood Debate at Parkway Fall Classic

The Eagle Debate Team competed against 24 other schools at the Parkway West Fall Classic on October 12-13. Parkway West always hosts the first tournament of the season and this was the largest it has ever been. The good news is that more and more speech and debate programs are available to students, and thousands of students in the area have access to speech and debate. This helped make this year's Parkway West tournament more competitive than it has ever been. It was a difficult tournament, but the Eagle Debaters had a great weekend!

Congratulations to the following students for their awards at the Parkway West Fall Classic:

Amelia Ayotte:
6th Place Varsity Original Oratory

Eloise Ayotte: 
2nd Place Novice Original Oratory

Ben Haug:
2nd Place Varsity Program Oral Interpretation
4th Place Varsity Humorous Interpretation

Ana Sanchez:
2nd Place Novice Interpretation

Jonas Wall:
3rd Place Varsity Radio Speaking

I also want to give a shout out to Ash Devaughan, Max Pulliam, and Zoe Arrindell for being in the top 10 in their events and being so close to advancing into elimination rounds. In addition, Maya Sabeh was in semifinals of radio speaking and she and Jonas Wall had a winning public forum debate record this weekend. That's a pretty great start! A final thank you to the Brentwood Boosters who provided the students with food and energy all weekend. We appreciate you.

Overall, Brentwood finished 9th out of the 24 schools in attendance. Brentwood sent 9 students and every school above us in the sweepstakes rankings comes with anywhere from 40 - 100 students, making Brentwood's Debate Team competitive with much larger programs. 

Congratulations to all of our students who participated, and to Ms. Haug for her leadership and work in providing the details for this story.  #TheBrentwoodWay
