DECEMBER AND JANUARY DEBATE NEWS

On Saturday, Dec 1, three AHS Public Forum Debate teams competed in the Dragon Invitational at Johnston HS.  All three teams made it through the preliminary rounds. Mizzan Dilusso and Jacob Stevens broke to the octafinal round; Daniel Lee and Malik Davis got to the quarterfinal round, and Helen Hu and Dakshina Paudyal who had had a perfect record of eight wins, lost in the final round to finish second in the event.

The following weekend Dowling Catholic in Des Moines held its annual tournament, The Paradigm, and several AHS Public Forum Debaters competed.  Susanna Mkhitaryan and Silvia Aydinyan were quarterfinalists and added a second bid point to the one they earned when they won the NSDA Season Opener in Kentucky back in September.  They have now qualified to compete in the National Tournament of Champions at the University of Kentucky in the spring. In the novice breakout, Freshmen Jerry Han and Jacob Stevens advanced to the final round.  

On December 14 and 15 two AHS PF teams competed at the Blake School’s annual event in Minneapolis.  In addition to debating in the tournament, Silvia and Susanna had the honor of participating in the Public Forum Round Robin.

Finally last weekend, hoping to repeat last year’s performance at the Iowa High School Speech Association’s State Debate Tournament where AHS swept the top four spots in the Galligan Division of Public Forum Debate, six AHS teams competed.  This year in the Riggleman Division all twelve of our debaters made it past the preliminary rounds. Jacob Stevens and Rishabh Swamy, Mizzan Dollisso and Mariam Mkhitaryan, Malik Davis and Daniel Lee, and Helen Hu and Dakshina Paudyal were all octofinalists.  Hana Lee and Anu Lamsal were quarterfinalists. Silvia Aydinyan and Susanna Mkhitaryan made it to the final round and placed second in the event. In the Speaker Points Awards for the preliminary rounds of Public Forum, Mizzan came in tenth, Silvia second, and Mariam garnered the top place in the event, a notable achievement for any debater, but all the more so for a debater in her novice year.
