Ella Beiser, Assistant Editor

The debate team scored a 2-5 at the Glenbrooks Speech and Debate tournament in the north suburbs Nov. 17-19. The team will compete at Lane Tech College Prep this weekend.

Novice debaters scored a 4-7. Freshman Berk Oto placed 24th and sophomore Roma Bhattacharjee placed 27th out of 62 novices.

“Lane Tech is a smaller, local tournament. There are no bids at stake, but our goal is to get some much needed practice and hopefully perform really well as we gear up for the upcoming, more competitive tournaments,” Jasmine Wang said.
