CX Debate Medals at State

Gainesville High School advanced two teams to the State CX Debate meet, which was held March 16-18 in Austin.  Our two teams competed extremely well in the first four preliminary rounds with each team finishing with a 3-1 record (win-loss) and high individual speaker points. 

Out of a total of 56 teams, only 16 teams broke to Octofinals which required a 3-1 record and 111 adjusted speaker points. Senior team Jenny Liu and Radhika Bhakta broke through and our Junior team of Dalton Chancellor and Mark Chavez just missing the cut by 6 points! 

The girls did amazing in the Octofinal round making a tough decision for the panel of 3 judges, ultimately 2 of the judges voted for the other team and only one for thhe Jenny/Radhika team.

By making it to finals, Jenny and Radhika became state medalists in 4A CX debate and finish their senior debate season with pride!
