Congratulations are overdue to the MCC-Longview debate team who dominated the competition this past weekend at a tournament host by MCC-Longview’s Speech and Debate department.

In their first ever competition, Nick Pasternak and Thomas Schnackenberg won First Place in novice parliamentary debate. Schnackenberg also won Fifth Place speaker award, which means he was the fifth best speaker out of all the debaters at the weekend tournament.

Longview debaters overall garnered enough points from their individual events to take home Third in debate sweepstakes, and was the top community college in the entire tournament as well.

Joel Stockard also competed this weekend and had a great start in impromptu debate.
