Speech and Debate state

It's been a long season of virtual tournaments for the Jackson Hole High School speech and debate team, but they had a strong showing at the state tournament.

The Jackson Hole High School speech and debate team is sending a baker's dozen competitors to the national tournament.

Thirteen students qualified for nationals based on strong seasonlong performances and solid showings at the Wind River District tournament. This makes 24 years in a row that Jackson students have gone to nationals and the 34th season overall that they've done so.

Joshua Hansen, Wiliam Aepli, Lily Briggs, Alexis Hernandez, Sophie Lamb, Ventura Garcia Perez, Julieta Anaya, Blanca Sartillo Mejia, Sarah Schweitzer, Carter Worcester, Preston Harmon, Jackson Neishabouri and Jheili Montiel Huerta are all heading to the virtual tournament, which takes place June 13 through 18.
