  1. Douglas Debate is quickly becoming known as a major contender on the debate circuit in Western South Dakota and all of Wyoming. And, once again your debaters proved this by representing Douglas at our 4th tournament last night in Sturgis. In Lincoln-Douglas debate, Hannah Knight placed 2nd and Ethan Cookie placed 1st.  In Public Forum, both of these teams had the exact same record tying for 1st place. Congratulations to William Boniello and Pearl Taylor as well as Andrew Walters and Melissa Rothe. Great Job, hard work pays off.
