Alexander’s first debate tournament at Moore, Oklahoma
These are some photos from Alexander’s first debate tournament at Moore High School, in Oklahoma. He was in novice division as a 7th grader, and faced mostly 9th graders. The Lincoln Douglas debate topic currently is:
Resolved: The abuse of illegal drugs ought to be treated as a matter of public health, not of criminal justice.
These are some of Alexander’s flows of debate rounds he competed in. He did REALLY well, breaking into Octafinals! All the Classen teams dropped in Octafinals, however, and none advanced to quarters.
