The speech and debate team get ready for their annual conference happening on Feb. 3 and 4.
“The debate conference is a really big preparation for our NSDA admission districts,” senior Nya Vargas said. “It really helps us compete in our events so that were more prepared than we were before”
Individuals on the team get the opportunity to compete against challenging opponents and prepare for their district tournament happening in March.
“The tournament is a really big deal for our team because once you get conference out of the way and you know that's your preparation, once you go to districts you have the opportunity to place and go to nationals or have other opportunities for nationals which is really big for our school as well,” Vargas said.
The team spent a lot of time preparing and practicing for this upcoming tournament. This tournament is their last competition before heading to districts, so the stakes are high.
“I’m looking forward to competing with people who are really skilled and also planning to go to districts,” Vargas said. “And just kind of seeing who or what I have to prepare for.”
