Congratulations to Armstrong Debate

Congratulations to Armstrong Sophomore Andrew Urevig on his 2nd place finish at the 2012 Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) State Debate Tournament.  This was the first appearance for Armstrong High School at the State Debate Tournament.

During the first six rounds of preliminary debate, Andrew finished with a 5-1 record to be the 3rd seed in elimination rounds.  Andrew defeated Alex Gray from St. Francis High School in Quarter-Finals and Liz Weir from Visitation in Semi-Finals.

In the final-round, Andrew came up just a little short being defeated by Ashesh Rambachan of Eastview High School.  Andrew is only the second sophomore debater to compete in the MSHSL Debate Final-Round.  Next week, Armstrong and Cooper High School go on to compete at the National Qualifier Tournament.
