Like display cases in school hallways stuffed with ribbons and trophies representing student athletes’ victories and triumphs, the Los Alamos High School Hilltalkers have a few crowded trophy cases of their own in the school’s Speech Theater.
In June, the speech and debate team might be adding to the collection.
Seven Hilltalkers will travel June 14-19 to Birmingham, Ala., to compete in the National Forensic League’s National Tournament.
The prizes for the winners is more than just a shiny trophy, the tournament will also reward more than $130,000 in college scholarships.
Los Alamos students will compete in several categories. For instance, Jake Mayson and Ashlynn Daughton will participate in Duo Interpretation.
Ryan Marcus and Ben Batha along with Arik Burakovsky and Gannon Nelson will compete in Policy Debate and Daniel Cox will participate in the Lincoln/Douglas Debate.
To get to this point, these seven Hilltalkers had to get a first or second place finish in the National Qualifer, which was held March 26-28 at Albuquerque Academy.
They succeeded with flying colors.
