Four members of Waynflete’s Debate traveled to Brunswick High School on Saturday, January 29th to compete in the State Championship Tournament. Patricia Janick and Maddie Polkinghorn, two of the three senior co-captains, took part in the Varsity Public Forum Category as a team, and compiled a very creditable record of two wins and two losses. Junior Bodhi Small, who was taking part in only his third debate tournament, competed in the Novice Lincoln-Douglas category. He made it all the way to the semi-finals and ended up taking 3rd place in the state for his division. Arija Forsyth, the third senior co-captain of the team, competed in the Varisty Division for Lincoln-Douglas debates and for the second year in a row won the State Championship!

Overall, the Waynflete team of four students, competing again over twenty-five schools from around the state, placed fourth.
