Despite being nervous about participating in their first tournament of the year and dealing with technology glitches, the Maggie L. Walker debate team had a successful weekend. The tournament, sponsored by Holy Cross High School out of New Orleans, brought together some of the best debaters in the country to compete in a virtual debate format. In total, 72 different schools from around the nation were represented at the tournament. Lincoln-Douglas debaters Senthil Meyyappan (’21-Henrico, pictured in the center) and Tejas Muthusamy (’21-Henrico, pictured 3rd from left) advanced to the playoff rounds with Tejas Muthusamy making it to the Quarterfinals before losing on a 2-1 decision.
Good work, Dragons!
