Bozeman notched a solid first-place win at the Kalispell Speech and Debate Invitational Tournament Friday and Saturday, outdistancing the competition with a total of 237 points.

Flathead took second place with 143 points, followed by Glacier in third with 123.5.

"I’m very excited about the growth this team made in seven days,” Glacier Speech and Debate Head coach Greg Adkins said. “We won four events and closed out Oratory, MPA, and Dramatic Interp in an impressive fashion. Our next step is to become more balanced across the events, but I feel like we are trending in the right direction."

Adkins said Bozeman’s debate squads are “remarkably strong” this year.

“Flathead is proving to have better balance across the events, but I'm encouraged that our JV team scored 70 points,” Adkins said. “As those students learn and make adjustments, they will help our varsity team contend for championships."

Flathead Head Coach Shannon O'Donnell said the tournament experienced fewer technical issues than last weekend and went very smoothly.

"Glacier came on strong in the memorized events this weekend and maintained their dominance in Dramatic Interpretation," O'Donnell said. "Despite losing a few of last weekend's top performers to quarantine, the team rallied to a strong finish in LD and the short prep events, landing in second place."
