Butte College Speech and Debate Wins at San Francisco State
The forensics team traveled to San Francisco for their first competition of the year this past weekend. Patrick Mullholland (pictured far right), Kathryn Eppley (far left), and Claire McAlister (pictured center), all in their first semester on the team, did a fantastic job and competed in two events each!
Day 1 results: Kathryn advanced into novice Persuasive Speaking finals, Claire advanced into finals for Impromptu Speaking and was awarded top novice for her After Dinner Speech (a speech to entertain).
Day 2 results: Kathryn took 3rd place in Novice Persuasive Speaking, Claire took 3rd place in Impromptu Speaking and also advanced to final rounds of After Dinner Speaking. ADS was collapsed both days, meaning, those rounds of competition included novice and experienced speakers together.
We are so proud of these three Butte College representatives and excited for our next tournament this October in Reno!
