Season Openers Were a Success!
DV did fantastic at the season openers this year of Loyola, Garcia, and Greenhill! Let’s keep up the momentum for the rest of the season!
Under the leadership and tutelage of Ms. Aleisha Readye, the Dougherty Valley Speech and Debate Team has been recognized by the National Speech and Debate Association as ranked 12th out of over 3,000 schools and has been named part of the prestigious and exclusive Pinnacle Club, which marks Ms. Readye’s commitment to teaching students about communication, research, writing and speaking through debate.
Kavin Kumaravel and Kabir Dubey
Both our Lincoln Douglas Captain and our president have had a tremendous amount of competitive success this season. The two started off strong at the Loyola Invitational where Kavin got 3rd speaker and was a Semifinalist earning the team’s first Bid to the Tournament of Champions (TOC) and Kabir got 9th speaker and was an octofinalist. They continued strong at the Greenhill Invitational where Kavin and Kabir ended preliminary rounds 6-0 and 5-1 respectively. At the Long Beach Invitational, Kabir debated extremely well and reached the Semifinals, was the 11th Speaker and earned the team’s third bid to the TOC in LD. The two continued their success at the Voices Invitational. These two have brought a lot of recognition to DV Lincoln Douglas. WILDCAT PRIDE!
Chilsea Wang and Michael Finnessey
Our two Parli Captains have done exceptionally well at these past few tournaments with a finals appearance at the Jack Howe invitational at Long Beach. The pair also got to Octofinals at the Notre Dame Invitational with Michael getting 2nd speaker at the tournament. They have had an amazing start to their season and we are looking forward to their continued success as the season progresses!! Way to Go Dougherty Valley Wildcats!
