As another month comes to a close, it's clear that our academic teams are going above and beyond the AHS expectations. Speech and Debate continues their season with its members receiving awards for their respective events in invitationals as well as in Fall Novice and Fall Varsity. With everyone steadily improving, there is no doubt that they will provide fierce competition for the other schools. Our school's Mock Trial has ended, but the team is happy with its performance up to this point. Hopefully, next year's team will also attempt for the state championships!
Our other academic teams are busy preparing for a ton of upcoming tournaments, and the captains remain confident in their members' abilities! Remember to congratulate speech and debate members for their outstanding performances, and stay alert for more updates!
Speech and Debate participated in their first Icebreaker tournament and hosted the Package Deal tournament at AHS last Saturday. Chassity Cheng, Leon Chen, Perry Lu, Jasmine Mohammed, Conner Hua were all the novices from Arcadia that placed at Ice Breakers.
