Raisin Center Invitational / CSU Fresno

The PLNU Speech and Debate team participated in its first tournament of the year this last weekend. Although we have the largest and probably youngest team I can remember, our entry at the Fresno tournament was only two students, Joelle Pendergrass and Shannon Hutchison who were fully prepared and met our demanding entry requirements. But those two did very well, as did our new Coach and Com Dept Prof. Kathleen Burnett who has replaced Konrad Hack.
Here are the results for the Fresno tournament:
 

In Junior Division Parliamentary Debate Shannon and Joelle advanced to elimination rounds and won their Octa Final and Quarter Final rounds before losing in Semis and winning Third Place overall. Shannon also won Fifth Place in Junior Extemp. Shannon won Third Place in Junior Persuasion and First Place in Junior Extemp. Combined, these two students also ended up winning a sweepstakes trophy (9th place in a field of well over 30 teams) for the school competition against other programs that had much larger entries. Nice start to the new year ladies.
