Belfry Speech and Debate’s season has taken flight. This year with a team of seven, students have pulled out all the stops. Our first meet was in Billings on 11/4, where a whopping 570 students competed. Cassidy and Katy took home a sixth place in Serious Duo, with their piece about Slavery.
On 11/ 11, the team was off at Miles City competing. The Bats kicked it into gear with a double placing. Cassidy and Katy placed fifth place with their Serious Duo. Jarret blasted through finals with a fifth place win as well. Whitney, our lone debater, ended up earning a speech point with her speaking points in Debate. JD and Abby both barley missed the cut off for finals, and JD ended up with a first place in one of his rounds.
