Closing out an event [19 Jul 2006|10:31am]

Here are all the times we have closed out events at a Great Debate or took control of at least two of the four top offices (Gov., Lt. Gov., Speaker, Chief Justice)  at an LDZ. 

A couple of notes: the older classes, I cannot remember some last names so I am just putting first names for everyone. Second, the winner of the round is denoted by being listed first. Third, we have completely closed out an event two times by getting all three awards: 1998 Oratory at Ambassador  and 2003 Impromptu at Ambassador. In 2002 Ambassador, we completely closed out the tournament by winning all four events, a second in Impromptu and the Silver Cup.

Bulletin from Sherman

We advanced five orators, five cx teams, five extempers and all six mock teams in the All Star rounds..

We advanced 30 kids and Houston advanced 34 kids. There are about 5 RGV vs. Houston Sweet 32 rounds tomorrow. So the cup will be decided pretty early.

Please pray. Pray all you can.

I have a good feeling that this is our year.

The Trailblazing Class of 2002 [12 Aug 2005|05:49pm]

I am going to miss these kids. That's Marce, Alma, Dana and Jonathon as sophomores as they
embarked upon being coaches. Now they are embarking on the adventure of their lives...freshman year of college. They are all pretty amazing. They were great participants and tremendous coaches. This picture captures the joy that they brought to this program every Sunday afternoon over the last four years.

Also pictured is Melody Garcia, who embarks on her senior year at Edinburg High School and a pretty incredible person herself.

The 2002 class provided us with some of our best staff people: Bobby, Monkey, Charley and Amanda Espinosa.

Thank you RGVYLC Class of 2002 for getting us to where we are now.
