Waring debaters, judges, and parents had a fabulous experience at the Harvard High School Tournament, held in Cambridge on February 18-20. This tournament, the largest in the nation, had over 2000 debaters and judges in attendance. Waring had success in all levels of the tournament.
Micah '26 had a record of 6 wins and only 1 loss, debating with a colleague from Concord Carlisle HS. They won the trophy for elimination rounds, tying for 17th in a field of 175 teams. Robbie '29, debating alone in the middle school division, earned a trophy for 17th in a field of 168 teams. Also competing with distinction were Gigi '27 & Leo '28, Michael '26 & Ava '26, and Wilhelmina '26 & Ana '26.
Judging for Waring were our advanced debaters: Cam '23, Alex '24, Mikaila '24, and Eliza '24.
We were assisted by our parents who drove to and from Cambridge each day, and Coach Tim Averill ran the tabulation room all weekend.
The team will return to competition at the Mardi Gras Tournament at Shrewsbury HS on March 4.
