The Battle of Brooklyn

Last Friday, 721K hosted the Battle of Brooklyn Debate- for the final match of the year- to determine runner-up positions in the high school competition. Congrats to the 721K Knights of Reasons for winning the 3rd Place title and to the 373K Fire Debaters for earning Honorable mention. It was the closest match we have ever had in a finals competition! Both teams did an amazing job defending their positions and laying out their arguments and evidence. They even took a wild card question from the judges.

Thank you to all of the teachers, family members, and student debaters who participated this year!

…and that is a wrap on Season 18 of D75 Debate!
