PLNU Speech and Debate Team Highlights
This fall semester, PLNU’s Speech and Debate team has met with continued success. They have recently earned the top spot in the country as the National Parliamentary Debate Associations #1 team in the national sweepstake race. The beginning of the year started out with a larger team than previous years, with numerous freshman recruits and transfer students joining our debate family, and PLNU alum Angela Compton, Joel Day, Jordon Cherry and Chris Gutierrez staying for another year, this time as coaches. Despite a larger team competing, increasing travel costs, and strained budget concerns, PLNU has again proved to be one of the most competitive teams in the nation.
