Freezing weather, late-night practices and glimmering trophies: last weekend, the speech and debate team struck again at the 37th annual Glenbrooks Invitational in Chicago. The tournament is the largest in the nation hosted by a high school. At an event with more than 500 competitors in a wide variety of events, Heritage stood out once again.
Topics ranged from policies reprioritizing aid to Colombia to renegotiating international defense agreements, and students spent weeks preparing individually and as a group before the tournament.
The competitions, one at Harvard University and the other at UC Berkeley, took place simultaneously from Feb. 18 to Feb. 20.
This weekend, the debate team will travel to Stanford University for the 30th annual Stanford Invitational Speech and Debate Tournament.
