November 3rd through November 9th Spanish Fork High School’s Debate Team attended the David Damus Tournament at the University Of Southern California. Debating started Friday the 5th, and ended Sunday the 7th. Several Lincoln Douglas Debaters broke- meaning they won enough rounds out of the six that they broke into the octa-finals. Debaters Lisie Dixon, Jake Muhlestein, and Wesley Curtin were these debaters. Lisie and Jake both lost their first octa-final round, however Wesley won five out of the six preliminary rounds pushing him immediately into the quarterfinals wherein he lost that round. However,it placed Wesley at fourth best Junior Varsity debater at the competition.
All teams did well and gave it their all at the competition, making for another great year at debate tour.
