SCA’s Speech and Debate Team Won Big at the Rockhurst Tournament

(Lee’s Summit, MO) Summit Christian Academy’s Speech and Debate Team participated in the Rockhurst Speech and Debate Tournament this past weekend. “It was another banner debate tournament this past weekend,” shared Mr. Evans. “We took a smaller team to the Rockhurst Tournament due to the ACT and other scheduling conflicts, but our team definitely made an impact!”

Below are the award winners from the Rockhurst Speech and Debate Tournament:

  • Sophie Schooley – Semi-finalist (top 14) in Program Oral Interpretation
  • Connor Healy – 2nd place in US Extemporaneous Speaking (out of 51) and 4th place (out of 36) in Original Oratory
  • Bryce Ferguson and Ryan Sparks – 2nd place out of 32 teams
  • Quality Team Award – Awarded to our team

The “Quality Team Award” is a new award introduced by Rockhurst this past weekend. It awards the team with the highest per-competitor score, and SCA’s team averaged 8.5 points per competitor!  The SCA team won a “plate” and it is pictured below.

“It was a great weekend with late nights but so worth it!  I am so inspired by these young people,” shared Mr. Evans.
