Eli LoCicero, Rob Brooksher, Rachel Glazer, Luke Tucker (front)
More good news from the debate front! North Hall High School's debate team had a great showing at Saturday's tournament at Sequoia High School in Canton. N2N's Rachel Glazer placed first in Dramatic Interpretation. Rachel and Eli LoCicero placed second in Duo Interpretation. Luke Tucker, in his first tournament ever, placed third in Humorous Interpretation. Rob Brooksher was awarded the third place speaker's trophy for student congress.
Even more impressive, these kids began their day at 5 a.m., traveling to Canton for the meet, competed all day and then returned to Gainesville in time to perform for a nearly full house in North Hall's production of "Almost, Maine." Way to go, Trojans!

And how's this for easy? If you forget to bring anything, you can just step next door to Family Dollar Store and pick up some canned goods!
