This past weekend, the Fordham Prep Speech and Debate Team competed in the MiniStuy and the Grand Qualifying Tournaments at Stuyvesant High School. At the MiniStuy, sophomores Lucas Chu and Miles Stella finished in 1st and 2nd place respectively in their category of JV Extemp, with Lucas receiving his first half qualification for the state tournament and Miles receiving his second half making him eligible for the state tournament. At the Grand, Juniors Dimitrios Rentel, Jeacy Espinoza and Ryan Maguire made it to the semi final round in their category of Original Oratory. Each narrowly missed qualifying for the Catholic National Tournament in Louisville, Kentucky. Congratulations to the team for two successful tournaments!
