The Dalhart High School (DHS) debate team traveled to Canyon Friday, November 9 to participate in the West Texas A&M tournament. The CX Team of Marisa Mariscal and Waylon Bucher brought home first place in the novice CX debate. The CX team of Allyson Nieto and Foster Conner placed third in the novice CX debate.
“All of the students competed very well,” stated debate sponsor Helen Davis. The DHS students work very hard to excel in this competition each year and the majority of the debate team members also participate in various other extra-curricular activities and sports. The time they devote to the competitions and the research and practice to fine tune their skills shows great dedication to the team, the school and the school system at large.
