VHS Senior Ranks Highest in State in Lincoln Douglas Debate

Marquis ends his high school Lincoln Douglas Debate career as the highest ranked debater in the state. During his senior season, Marquis only lost five rounds of competition. Congratulations Marquis!

Each tournament averages 5-6 preliminary rounds with out-rounds often beginning at octo or quarter-finals. The highlight of his senior season was at the Peachstate Classic Invitational hosted by Carrollton High School, one of the largest tournaments in the country, where Marquis went undefeated through 8 rounds of competition to emerge as the Champion.
