During this past spring break, the 2018 CX (Cross Examination) State Debate Tournament was held in Austin at the University of Texas. With the support of chaperone Mrs. Obasi, our two scholar Speech and Debate Team team of junior Belinda Obasi (Wisdom TV News Reporter) and junior Erick Poz competed in the event. Despite being Junior Varsity debaters facing Varsity competition from around the entire state of Texas, Obasi & Poz were able to win two of their four rounds.
The Debate Team remained in Austin to tour the Capitol Building and observe the top 5A CX teams competing. “We just want to thank Principal Trinh for his encouragement and support,” said Coach D’Amico. “We will be back next year to hopefully bring back some awards.”
