Three out of the four novice debate teams from CHS that competed at Cherryvale’s Novice Tournament Nov. 6 made their presence known by coming home with medals for three of the top five places.
Finishing in first was Cadence Reed and Brayden Oliver, with a 3-0 record at the tournament. Team members Ethan West and Nathan Matlock took third with a 3-0 record. Cavin Cation and Jacob Adams took fifth with a 2-1 record.
The fourth team, Kenzi Boyd and Jalen Riggs, didn’t place, “but they fought hard,” said Coach Chase Reed.
This year’s debate topic for students is arms sales. The resolution states:
"Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially reduce Direct Commercial Sales and Foreign Military Sales of arms from the United States."
The affirmative team will argue that the U.S. should substantially reduce arms sales to other countries, and the negative team will argue to maintain the arms sales to other countries.
