On Saturday, February 20, 2010, the Spanish Fork Debate teams had the opportunity to compete for Region at Payson High School. The students had prepared to compete for several weeks before the competition. In the different types of debate, two teams from Spanish Fork went undefeated. Many other teams did well and were the top teams of at the competition. The Spanish Fork team came in second over-all and will compete for state in March. It looks like the team has more preparation ahead of them.
