John R. Park Debate Society Finishes Fall Season on a High Note

The John R. Park Debate Society traveled to Rock Springs, Wyoming for its final outing of the Fall 2017 competitive season at the Winter is Coming Invitational hosted by Western Wyoming Community College. At the tournament, the team accomplished success across each of its competitive endeavors, including the top 9 speakers in debate, a debate close-out in semifinals (meaning all four semi-finalists were representing the U), and winning 11 of 22 public speaking events across 2 days of competition. The team will look to build on its strong Fall season with its Spring opener on the University of Utah campus January 4-7, 2017.
