Members of the Cameron University forensics team earned awards at the Border Wars speech and debate tournament, hosted in a virtual format by Kansas Wesleyan University.
“Competing virtually can be challenging, but we are committed to participating in as many tournaments as possible,” says Katie Stringer, director of CU’s forensics team. “Naturally, we look forward to returning to in-person competitions, but in the meantime, our team members will continue to hone their presentation skills and represent the Cameron Aggies to the best of their abilities.”
Aggie debaters Sacred Martinez, a junior biology major from Lawton, and Dylan Griggs, a junior computer science major from Lawton, led the team to third placed in the overall debate category. Martinez was named second finalist in IPDA debate as well as taking second place for IPDA speaker. Griggs earned the fourth place IPDA speaker award.
Micah Elroy, a junior biology major from Duncan, represented the Aggies in the interpretative categories. He placed second in prose and third in poetry.
