Debators Going to State!
Congratulations to Beverly Balasu and Angel Ornelas for qualifying for state this weekend at UIL districts. Beverly and Angel went undefeated at the qualifying tournament, earning the top seed in elimination debates. After a 13 hour day and 5 debates against tough opponents from Sunset, Gilliam, and other DISD schools, Beverly and Angel advanced to the finals of the district tournament earning one of two spots at the state tournament.
We will be going to Austin over spring break to compete against schools from all over Texas. Above is a photo of Beverly and Angel (right side) with their medals with the team from Irma Rangel (left side) that earned the other spot at state for our district.
