The Melissa High School Speech and Debate Team traveled to the Lovejoy TFA Tournament on Saturday to compete in an early-season tournament.

The team’s interpreters walked away with several awards and its novice debaters had an impressive showing, dominating the novice Lincoln-Douglas Debate division.

Team captains Hallie Crain and Drew Richardson worked alongside the novices to prep for the tournament.

“Undoubtedly, the impressive showing was a result of the hard work our captains did with our novices in preparation for this tournament,” said coach Kyle Brenner.

Individual results from the tournament are as follows.

  • Bella Walker – 5th place, Poetry
  • Bella Walker – 6th place, Dramatic Interp
  • Bella Walker – 4th place, Program of Oral Interp
  • Justin Berkeland – 5th place, Program of Oral Interp
