Speech and Debate Team at State Qualifiers

SLA Students compete for their place at State Championships.

The SLA Speech and Debate team sent two entries to PHSSL state championship qualifiers at LaSalle College High School last Saturday.
Senior captains Lydia Anderson and Tigidankay Saccoh competed in Public Forum Debate, while junior Nzinga Suluki took third place in Oral Interpretation of Prose. 
Nzinga is now the District 11 Alternate to the State Championship tournament on March 16th and 17th.
Lydia had already auto-qualified for the tournament in Impromptu Speaking, while Tigidankay is similarly auto-qualified for Congressional Debate in the House of Representatives.
