Speech and Debate Prepares for First Tournament

Speech and Debate is going on its first tournament of the school year, called a “Swing Tournament.” The tournament takes place on Friday, September 2, and Saturday, September 3. The tournament consists of several events in speech and debate; some of the events are world schools, Lincoln-Douglass, Cross-Examination (CX), Congress, Oratory, Interpretation and more. Many schools in Texas will be competing in the tournament. Teams can compete as either Novices or Varsity. Novices are people who are newer to Speech and Debate and don’t have as much experience, and Varsity is veterans or more experienced people who have been doing Speech and Debate for longer.
