SHHS Debate Team  (COVID Tested)

Congratulations to the Salem Hills Debate Team for finishing Second at State!!

It takes an entire village to help prepare these students to place so well, especially this year where the students had to compete online all year. 

Coach Douglas Welton said, “This group has worked extremely hard. We were soooo close in so many events. Second Place is a tremendous accomplishment, but it hurts being so close in so many events. We were in finals or semifinals in every event for the first time ever! Truly amazing!”
