The Aquinas Speech & Debate Team is in its third year and is proud to have a student qualified to the State Tournament for the third year in a row! Congratulations to senior Graceyn Dowd for her qualification to the state finals in Dramatic Interpretation. Graceyn placed 3rd in the state last year in her category and is hopeful for another successful state tournament in March. Graceyn is also a two-time qualifier to Nationals where she finished 13th in the nation which helped solidify national ranking for the team as a whole. The Aquinas Speech & Debate Team is young, yet they have already earned national ranking and are noted as a school that has a strong public speaking program.
The team will compete in the Big District Tournament this weekend, with the hopes of qualifying for the National Tournament for the third year in a row. Good luck, Knights!
