Discourse and debate on glaciers win ‘savage’ victory


In a victory described by Glacier High School head coach Greg Adkins as one of the craziest finishes in a speech and debate tournament, the Wolfpack squeaked by Flathead High School by a half -point this weekend.

Glacier scored 141 points overall versus 140.5 points for Flathead in the two-day tournament in Great Falls. All 16 Montana Class AA teams competed.

“I told the team to never take winning AA tournaments for granted. It was just wild. We’re very lucky to have taken the lead this weekend, ”said Adkins.

The shocking upheaval didn’t end there, said Flathead head coach Shannon O’Donnell, Billings West beating Bozeman with his dominant debate performance to secure third place. Billings West scored 140 points overall and Bozeman, 131.

“As the state tournament draws closer and Team Flathead continues to close the gap between the top teams, it’s clear this year’s season will have an exciting ending. It’s anyone’s game this time around, ”said Flathead head coach Shannon O’Donnell.

Glacier, who remains undefeated, had five individual champions – Mac Adkins in Original Oratory; Lane McKoy in the informative speech; Alexa Wilton in the oral interpretation program; and Alexandra Houseworth and Mason Fauth in the university policy debate.

The four individual Flathead Champions included Bauer Hollman in the humorous interpretation; Annelise Mason in the legislative debate; Brooklyn Stewart in the memorized public speech; and Scout McMahon in Extemporaneous Speaking.

During the next tournaments, Glacier will host the first “Yeti Invitational” from January 7 to 8. The school is looking for volunteer judges. Those interested in judging can register at https://www.kalispellspeechdebate.org.
