Parkersburg South Speech and Debate Team

By  | 

We hear a lot about high school athletic teams - not so much about academic teams.

But we want to introduce you to one that's doing just as well and practices just as hard as the school's wrestling team - Parkersburg South's Speech and Debate Team.

Poetry is just one of ten different events performed at speech tournaments.

There's ten in all, including impromptu speaking, humorous interpretation and Lincoln Douglas debate.

South's team is decades old but not until the past couple years have they done so well, traveling the country and winning hundreds of awards.

And the 26 members of the team have devoted themselves, winning their first tournament in decades last week.
