Altamont Students Win National Debate Title
Julie Beckwith

The 2018 National Debate Coaches Association (NDCA) National Championship was held April 14-16, 2018, at Marist School in Atlanta, Georgia. Altamont's team of Seniors, Isabel Coleman and David Zell, swept the ballots to capture the NDCA tournament title and become 2018 National Public Forum Debate champions! David and Isabel were also first and second place speakers respectively at the tournament.

The Altamont team of 9th graders Maggie Doyle and Hannah Ashraf placed 8th overall, an exceptional accomplishment for debaters their age. Lincoln Douglas debaters, 9th graders Aly Pabani and Isabella Maldia, cleared three rounds in a large field of nationally ranked debaters. Junior Sara Catherine Cook participated in the tournament as an alternate and was assistant coach to the 9th graders after rounds.

Congratulations and Go Knights!
