Debaters Win at First Event of Season — The SRHS speech and debate team had great success Oct. 7 at Suncoast High School in its first local competition of the year, a Student Congress event sponsored by the Palm Beach Catholic Forensic League. Twelve Hawks competed, and six won awards.

“We’re proud of our start, and we hope to continue our success at our next tournament,” debate coach Janine Braner said.

Congratulations to debater Summer Squadrito, who was awarded Best Presiding Officer in her chamber and fifth place.

“Placing is a rare accomplishment,” Braner said. “In this case, Summer was running a chamber for half the tournament — and for the first time.”

More congratulations to Morgan Davidson for being named Best Presiding Officer in her chamber. “This was also Morgan’s first time as a presider,” Braner added.

Antonio Pernas was named Best Presiding Officer in his chamber, Gena Rai took second place in her chamber, Kailee Matthews took third place in her chamber at her first competition and Annamarie Renda took sixth place in her chamber, also at her first competition.
