A good weekend for HSAS Debaters

HSAS dominated the City Debate Championships this weekend, with all four of our teams advancing to quarter-finals. Congratulations to the pairings of Julius Dunn and Eli O’Brian, Sam Tyroler and George Koral, Kuang Wang and Galib Kabir, and finally, Scott Siegel and Zoe Markman (see photo above). Zoe and Scott advanced to the final round, where they came in second place and were awarded a scholarship to the National Debate Coaches Association (NDCA) National Championships in Atlanta, Georgia, on April 13-16. This is HSAS’ third straight appearance in the final round of city championships, and the first time HSAS will be represented at Nationals. Congratulations to all and good luck to the HSAS Debate Team in Georgia and at the UDL State Championship in Queens on April 16-17.
