High School's Ninth Grade Debate Team had another strong showing on Saturday, October 9 at the virtual Trevian Invitational hosted by New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois. Ellie Rothman '25 and Ophelia Cherry-Pulay '25 finished the one-day novice event with a 3-0 record. Ophelia and Ellie won the third and fourth place speaker awards out of 131 competitors. Collin Chan '25 and Eleanor Molvig '25 finished with a 2-1 record. Collin claimed the seventh place speaker award and Eleanor finished 17th. The team is busy gearing up for the Iowa Caucus debates in late October.
Congratulations to Lily Mozzi '23 who finished 11th in the girls' division in the regional bowling tournament and Frederick Rudolph '23 who finished 18th in the boys' division. Lily advances to state and makes school history as the first Tiger to qualify for the state individual tournament.
