The Trinity Prep Forensics Team took nine students this past weekend to the University of Kentucky to compete in the Tournament of Champions. One of the top three most prestigious tournaments all year, students have to do very at tournaments earlier in the year to compete. Eli Finkelstein '19 and Alissa Vuillier '19 made it to quarterfinals, placing in the top 24 of 96 competitors in Extemporaneous Speaking. Ashley Mason '20 placed 9th out of 49 competitors in Oral Interpretation. Finally, Alexis Huang '20 and Katie Rohrbaugh '20 won first place out of 151 competing teams in Silver Public Forum! Half of the TPS students who participated in the tournament advanced to elimination rounds! This is a great accomplishment for the whole team, as Trinity Prep has not had a champion at the Tournament of Champions in recent history.
Additionally, Nathan Johnston has been recognized by the National Speech & Debate Association for his exemplary volunteerism to promote speech and debate. He was elected by his peers in 2017 to serve a two-year term as a committee member. Trinity Prep is very appreciative of Nathan and his dedication to our forensics program.
