Proud parents always have to announce certain things, and I'll join that parenting club in this post. My son and daughter are both on the Indianola High School Debate Team which for the 2nd consecutive year, took the State Championship this weekend in Iowa City. This was Alexa's first trip to the state tournament as a freshman and it was Zack's second year at the tournament. Both participate in the Public Forum category.
Final scores for the top 3 teams out of the 33 teams that competed were:
Indianola High School: 210
Ankeny High School: 209
Iowa City West: 200
Way to bring home the bacon IHS Debate Team!!!! And kudos to Coach/Teacher Spencer Waugh for building the team over the past few years with very little financial support from the administration. Here's to future success in upcoming seasons.
Of course, after the State Championship was won, there was no town parade. No tailgating party. No cheerleaders. No balloons. No "tunnel of love" as the debate team entered or exited the building. No school assembly to welcome the team home and congratulate them. Blah, blah, blah....
We did recognize the efforts of our own children here at home on Sunday. ;-)
