Jo Rhode, NDHS Debate teacher, said the North Dallas Debate Team competed Thursday in the District 11-5A UIL Debate Competition.
After three rounds, one of our teams advanced to the finals, and ended the tournament with enough wins and speaker points to advance them — along with two teams from Woodrow Wilson — to the state competition at the University of Texas in Austin.
“This was an extremely hard year for us moving up to 5A,” Rhode said, “but those kids practiced so hard and were ready. The team (Dalia Mercado and Issac Yanez) that advanced stayed up till 4:00 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. — (I know, they texted me!) — working on their files and speaking abilities.
“I am so insanely proud of the debate team. If you see any of these students, give them a pat on the back.”
The Bulldogs debate team includes:
