Debaters Gain Experience at Tournament

Bea Brynda, Joy Lundberg, Nes Mager, and Syd Wallace

Five Stoneleigh-Burnham students traveled to a parliamentary extemporaneous debate tournament at Buckingham Browne and Nichols School in Cambridge, MA on Sunday, Dec. 3.

The Stoneleigh-Burnham Debate and Public Speaking Society sent four competitors, Joy Lundberg ’20, Syd Wallace ’19, Bea Brynda ’20, and Nes Major ’20, and one observer, Aurola Zhang ’21, to the tournament.

Joy and Nes tied with Milton Academy for third place overall in the Novice Division. They were undefeated, beating three other teams. In all three rounds, Joy earned the top speaker spot, and in two of those rounds, Nes placed second.  Syd and Bea had some difficult rounds, but had fun.
