SCHOOL NEWS anaheim hills debaters dominate eagle invitational

The Anaheim Hills Debate Team brought home the Golden Gavel Award and the Overall School award at the Eagle Invitational debate tournament on Sunday, December 12. Hosted by Fairmont Edgewood campus and held at Fairmont Prep Academy, the tournament was attended by seven schools: Fairmont AH, Fairmont Edgewood, Fairmont Mable, Hebrew Academy, Heritage Oak, Pegasus, and Serra Catholic.  

There were 33 teams made up of 98 individual speakers.  Awards were given to the top 10 teams, top 24 speakers, as well as the Tournament Award (total number of wins) and the Overall School award (highest percentage of wins). 

“I want to especially thank my assistant coach, Lulu Crawford, for the many hours she has spent  helping the kids to research and formulate outstanding arguments, and to my Team Mom, Lisa Ngo, for her constant support in coordinating and providing snacks for our students at practices and tournaments,” said Debate Coach Kristi Mead.

Fairmont debate teams’ next event will be an Inter-League tournament with Inland-Valley Debate League (IVDL), which was the original league to which AH and Edgewood belonged before the creation of the OCDL.  The tournament will be held at Walton Middle School in Compton on February 5, 2011.
