Congratulations to the Debate team on their success at recent tournaments. Austin High has taken BOTH 1st and 2nd place at the Akins High School and St. Edwards University meets. This means that we have qualified two teams for the state meet which will allow the Austin High School Debate team to defend their State Championship title from last spring.
Senior Joseph Estrada and Senior Danielle Ortiz qualified for State at the Akins HS tournament where Joseph was selected top speaker. Sophomore Joslynn Sanchez and freshman Anevay Ramirez qualified for the state tournament at the St Edwards University tournament. It is extremely rare that a sophomore qualifies for the state meet, but Austin High has both a sophomore and a freshman qualified. Good luck, Maroons, in the State Debate Tournament.
