Washburn Debate Wins State!


This past weekend was the Minnesota Debate State Tournament and we're proud to announce that Washburn closed out, winning both first and second place! This happened because for the first time in its 117 year history, the Minnesota Debate League had two teams from the same school make it to the final round. The two pairs, Lily Endo/Luke Peichel and Grace Klage/Alex Dresdner were undefeated in the first 7 rounds of debate and then hit each other in the final round. What a finish! These kids work super hard, and it is very exciting that they were able to make this happen. Next up on their agendas are a few national tournaments that they qualified to attend: 1) The National Association of Urban Debate League tournament in late April in Washington DC; 2) Tournament of Champions in April in Kentucky. Way to go Millers!
