SSHS Debaters Compete in
District Cross-Examination Debate
From Gina Wilder, SSHS
Three SSHS C-X teams competed in the district competition that was held Tuesday, February 5, in Mt. Pleasant. Thirteen teams from five districts gathered for the competition. Only four of the thirteen teams advanced to the semifinal round. The SSHS team of Hunter Allen and Jessica Lappin were among the four. Two rounds later, Hallsville teams had won the first and second place spots with the Pine Tree team finishing third and Allen and Lappin in fourth place, making them second alternate to the State C-X competition.
Also competing for the Wildcats were the team of Avery Faulks and Mattison Medelline and the team of Joshua Robertson and Gillan Boyer. The SSHS C-X team is young, being comprised of freshmen and sophomores. These students did an outstanding job of representing SSHS, and all three of these teams have very bright futures ahead of them.
