Tuesday, April 2, 2019
The Sterling College debate and forensics team recently traveled to Hempstead, N.Y., for the Pi Kappa Delta National Tournament at Hofstra University. They competed among 71 schools March 21-24.
“Considering our very limited competition schedule this year, I felt our students performed well. With such a diverse field, we certainly held our own against teams that in some cases have as many coaches as we have competitors,” said Ken Troyer, forensics coach.
Joseph Bahr of Harker Heights, Texas, and Bethany Jenkins of Burns, Kansas, each received Excellent awards in IPDA Debate. Bahr also received a Superior award in Impromptu Speaking and an Excellent award in Extemporary Speaking.
Wesley Lowrey of Topeka, Kan., received an Excellent award in Impromptu Speaking.
Schools in the competition included: Azusa Pacific University, Boise State University, California Baptist University, College of Southern Idaho, Cornell University, Liberty University, Texas Christian University, University of South Dakota, among others.
