Lewis to compete at State


Kristy McGaughey, Academic Staff Writer

The academic debate team competed in a preliminary round at the Westwood Baptist Church on November 8th, 2016.

If the team passed the preliminary round, they could go to finals, which determined if they advanced, and after finals is the state competition. The top 6 that competed received medals, and the top 3 advanced.

Alesha Lewis was the third place congressional debate winner 4A region 7, which means she not only passed the preliminary rounds, but she advanced from finals. Lewis is now qualified for the state meet that will take place in Austin, Texas at UT Austin on January 9-11th.

“Congress is a lot of fun,” said Lewis “I wish more people wound join to
experience it.”
