The Servite Speech & Debate Team journeyed to Palo Alto last weekend for the Stanford Invitational Tournament. Eight debaters competed in two events, Congress and Lincoln-Douglas. Congress debaters showed perseverance and knowledge of current political topics by each competing in three 3-hour long rounds. After competing, they enjoyed a sightseeing trip to San Francisco. Senior Patrick Aimone took 2nd place in Lincoln-Douglas, earning his third bid to the TOC National Championship. He will compete in Kentucky in May, and is currently ranked 26th in the nation for LD. Congrats to the entire team and Coach Sarah Sherwood for a great travel tournament!
