Sterling College's debate and forensics team can proudly boast more state champions than any other school in the state, says Coach Ken Troyer. The team returned from the Kansas Individual Events and Parliamentary Championship, held at Barton County Community College in Great Bend, with state championships in varsity debate, novice division debate, impromptu speaking and persuasive speaking.

To say the Sterling College Debate and Forensics Team is "having a good season" is an understatement in Coach Ken Troyer's view. "Seeing that we have no seniors on the team this year, I am absolutely thrilled with our season," he said recently. "To have six qualified for the AFA nationals; a debate team ranked in the top two in the nation for most of the year; and four state championships-it's a tribute to the hard work and dedication of the SC students."
