Columbia Falls Wins Tenth State Speech and Debate Title

By Beacon Staff

After losing a 2007 class heavy with one- and two-time state champions, it was supposed to be a rebuilding year for the Columbia Falls High School’s speech and debate team.

However, champions rarely seem to listen to what is supposed to be.

Columbia Falls speech and debate team members won their tenth Class A state speech and debate championship this weekend, finishing ahead of second place Whitefish. Ten championships, more than any other Class A high school team in Montana history. Look for a follow up story later this week.

Below, assistant coach Dorr shows off the championship trophy.
