Debaters Head to States

Ward Melville High School’s Debate Team is moving on to the state championship.

Novice Public Forum team members Kathleen Esfahany and Michael Lu captured another trophy at this February’s Elimination Tournament at North Shore High School. They placed seventh out of 36 entrants, with full qualification for the state tournament to be held at Hofstra University in April.  

This third solid win by the school’s Debate Team marks an extraordinarily successful season in their first year of competition.
