IS Debaters Excel at Tournament of Champions

Eighth grade debaters Kay Rollins and Christian Herald gave strong performances at the National Middle School Tournament of Champions (TOC) at the University of Kentucky this past weekend.

Kay is a double national champion, winning in both extemporaneous speaking and original oratory. Having also competed at the High School TOC earlier this spring, Kay is the first 8th grader in the 44-year history of the high school tournament who advanced to semi-finals. Christian, who had only competed in two other tournaments this season, also saw success in Kentucky, taking 6th place in original oratory.
