Heelan Achieves in Debate

Student Place High in Debate Event
Posted on 01/25/2018

The Heelan Debate Team placed 8th out of 38 schools in the open class competition that included large 4A schools in the IHSSA State Debate Tournament at Ankeny in early January. 

Individually,  advancing to octofinals were the public forum teams of Emily Stanek and Lauren Sobaski, and Foster Johnson and Collin Jackson. Advancing to quarterfinals were Natalie Callaghan and Jessica Kratz. Placing in the B house in Congress were Becky Ricke and Brenden Frey.

Congrats to Coach Beth Dalton and our Heelan students who performed well against students from much larger schools.
