High School Weekly News | March 22

Please contact Theresa Cline at tcline@kingsschools.org if you have any questions.

Speech and Debate

The King’s Speech and Debate team traveled to UPS for the State Speech tournament, and secured 4th Place! While historical records of Washington Speech and Debate vary, it is clear that King’s is one of very few first year programs to secure a top-5 finish at State.

Individually, we have three State Champions from King’s—Elizabeth Anderson (Original Oratory) and the team of Dalton Schwab and Sam Hutmacher (Duo Interpretation). King’s, Gig Harbor (the 3A and below State Champions) and Thomas Jefferson (the 4A State Champions) were the only schools to secure multiple individual State Championships! Victoria Smith (2nd Place Humorous Interpretation) and Maci Hodgins (3rd Place Expository) were also major contributors to the 4th Place result.

Congratulations to all who have participated in the inaugural King’s Speech program this year! Next year, we go for the gold.
