The Grand County High School debate team competed in its first event of the season last weekend, attending the Utah Debate Coach Association’s Speech Arts invitational meet at West High School in Salt Lake City on Nov. 8 and 9. The event attracted some 35 schools from all around the state, according to Kristin Millis, now starting her first year as GCHS debate coach.

At the event, Grand’s Emma Sweeney took first place in impromptu in the junior varsity division, and fellow junior Stacey Andrus made it to the quarterfinals in Lincoln-Douglas debate. Also, GCHS senior Nat Smith and sophomore Emilia Cubelos teamed up to make it to the quarterfinals in Public Forum.

The team’s next competition will be the Carbon Combat Invitational in Price on Nov. 22-23.
