Successful End to Debate Team Season

MCC-Longview Debate Team coach John Mikolajcik is very proud of his team and he has good reason to be.

The team’s final tournament, the Pi Kappa Delta 100th Anniversary National Tournament in St. Louis, Mo., March 13-16, was a successful cap to the season. The PKD tournament is the oldest national tournament in the United States.

While there was not the individual member success of other tournaments this season, the team was able to come together and, according to Mikolajcik, “exceed our wildest expectations.” They placed third in the community college division, higher than state rival, Crowder College, which placed fifth.

Top individual competitors welcomed the chance to be examined by many of the leading debate and forensics programs around the nation.

Congratulations on an outstanding season, MCC-Longview Debate and Forensics!
