The Mountain Brook High School Debate Team competed against the 55 best policy debate teams in the elite Southern Bell Invitational tournament at Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville.
Evan McCarty and Philippa Straus became the first MBHS Debaters to clear into the sweet sixteen of the tournament. This was a MBHS first!
Evan also tied Lee Qunn’s record set last year for number of tournament bids.
Team coach Jeff Roberts said he wishes good luck to Evan and Philippa as they prepare for the Emory tournament and as Evan has the opportunity to set the all-time MBHS bid record.
