MHS Debaters Make Octafinal round of the TOC

McClintock High Debaters Justin Bever and Veekas Shrivastava made the Octafinal round at the 2009 Tournament of Champions in Lexington Kentucky last weekend, before dropping on a 2-1 decision to the top-seeded Durham Academy. The TOC is a difficult tournament to qualify for, requiring that teams perform particularly well at select tournaments throughout the season. Simply being a participant is an honor that many aspire to, and fail to achieve. Being among the top 16 teams at the tournament is extraordinary.

A hearty congratulations to these two graduating seniors. Both are off to Arizona State University, and are eager to help coach and train the next generation of MHS Debaters.
