Pierce Debate Team getting ready for the World Championship in Mexico!

On Sunday, October 6, 2019, two Pierce Debaters were selected to join the PFA Development Team. The debaters are both B Lyceum students, Panagis Gouvelis and Marilena Hadjicosta. The Development Team consists of 12 students who will all be doing intensive practice until December, when the final five are selected to represent Greece and the Panhellenic Forensics Association at the World Schools Debating Championship (WSDC) next summer in Mexico!

On Saturday, September 21, 2019 at the St. Catherine’s Debate Cup, Panagis and Marilena, reached the Final Round! They had ranked first among approximately 50 teams!

In the Speaker Tab, Panagis was ranked 2nd Best Speaker and Marilena was 3rd Best Speaker in the competition.

Good luck to our debaters!
