Hello BTU coaches, teachers, principals, and all other BDL volunteers,
BDL would like to extend congratulations to debaters and coaches for an impressive performance at Suffolk University. This past Saturday was our first middle school debate tournament of the season and it was the second-largest in BDL history! BTU competed against 17 other middle schools around the city. Here are some highlights from BTU’s debates this past weekend:
- Every team won at least one round out of three
- The teams of Gonzalez-Oviedo & Kamiya and Murray & Guevara won all three of their rounds
- Diaz (6th), Kamiya (7th), Johnson (10th), Guevara (12th) all placed as top speakers of the tournament in a large and competitive field
These results are a testament to the hard work put forth by debaters and coaches, and BDL is excited to watch the team improve over the rest of the season. We look forward to seeing what BTU debaters can do as they keep moving up into even higher divisions!
Please share this letter of congratulations with your school community so that everyone can celebrate the success of the BTU debate team. We look forward to seeing you at our next middle school tournament, November 11th, at Suffolk University!
