Students interested in future speech and debate opportunities are invited to attend practices on Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. in the high school library or sign up for the Southern Lehigh tournament on Saturday, May 4. The Lehigh tournament is open to both novice and varsity students and provides an excellent opportunity to jump right in, according to coach Sue Hayes.
