Three members of Immaculate Heart High School’s Speech and Debate team delivered strong performances at the recent National Speech and Debate Tournament in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Recent graduate Mia Speier and rising seniors Madeline Conrad-Mogin and Lena Mizrahi joined over 3,500 students to compete at Nationals. Speier entered in Lincoln Douglas debate while Conrad-Mogin and Mizrahi worked as members of one of two West Los Angeles District World Schools teams, where they argued on a variety of prepared and impromptu topics.

Over the course of the week-long tournament, Speier debated in 13 consecutive rounds, and her performance put her in a tie for eighth place overall, earning herself a place in the top ten Lincoln Douglas debaters in the country.

Conrad-Mogin and Mizrahi also turned in strong performances, losing only one preliminary round and breaking to tripleoctafinals.

Immaculate Heart High School congratulates these incredibly intelligent and driven young women.
