EL Debater Places 20th In Nation

On an unseasonably warm Memorial Day Weekend in Chicago, Elk Lake junior Molly Copeland put in her best performance of the season in Lincoln-Douglas Debate at the Catholic Forensics League’s Grand National Tournament by placing 20th in the country.

Molly compiled a four-win and one-loss preliminary record. In her wins, she picked up all three judges. Her one loss was a split decision.

She opened the tournament by defeating debaters from Gilmour Academy in Cleveland and Martin County High School in Palm Beach, FL.

Her third round was a rematch against Katie Rubin from Monticello High School in New York. Rubin won the first meeting between the two at the Ridge Tournament in January. This time, Copeland dominated the debate and defeated Rubin.

Molly’s only loss, a split decision, came against Heather Nagle from Spanish River High School in Palm Beach, FL.

Molly closed out the preliminary rounds by defeating Andrew Carlson from Kapaun Mount Carmel Catholic High School in Wichita, KS.

As a result of her preliminary record, the number of ballots she picked up, and her speaker points, Copeland was seeded 10th in Double-Octo Finals, the top 32 debaters in the tournament. She was the second highest seeded debater with one loss in the tournament.

On Sunday morning, Molly was paired against the 23rd seeded debater, Miles Brundage from Trinity Prep High School in Orlando, FL. Molly lost the round. As a result, she placed 20th overall in the tournament.

“This is an incredible end to the season for Molly (Copeland),” commented EL Forensics Director Keith Brosious. “In the 14 years of the EL Forensics program, she has placed higher than any other debater from EL ever has at nationals.”

“What makes this even more impressive is that she is only a junior,” added Brosious. “It is rare for juniors to place this high at nationals. They usually do not have the poise or ability to compete at that level. Clearly, that is not the case with Molly. She has poise, ability, and an incredible work ethic.”

For the season, Molly tied the team record with 71 total debates in a single season. She was second in team history with 49 wins in a single season.

Molly, coaches Keith Brosious and Jon Allen, and the rest of the EL Forensics Team will begin practice again in October in preparation for their first tournament, which is a little closer to home at Scranton High School, on the second weekend in November.

Montrose Kiwanian Receives Award

On Thursday, April 20, Montrose Kiwanian Josie Coddington was presented the Key of Honor Award. The award was presented by Christine VanFleet, District Key Club Administrator. Mrs. Coddington was nominated by her fellow Kiwanians for her dedication to the Elk Lake Key Club and all other Kiwanis activities.

This award was the only one given this year to Key Club International. Mrs. Coddington is the first woman to have received the Key of Honor Award.

Mrs. Coddington has been the Elk Lake Key Club advisor since it was chartered in 1990. Hundreds of students at Elk Lake have benefited from Mrs. Coddington’s supervision as she devoted time and effort to help the many projects of the Elk Lake Club become reality. Recently, the club was honored by the Janet Wise Children’s Hospital for a yearly donation of $500. Another project which Mrs. Coddington holds dear to her heart is the Gifts for Giving held each December at the Elk Lake Elementary School. Key Club members set up a small store of inexpensive gifts which the elementary students can purchase for parents and siblings. Each year the project grows as students look forward to shopping for holiday gifts at the Gifts For Giving Shop.

If anyone speaks to Mrs. Coddington about "her Key Club kids," she'll respond, "Did I ever tell you how much I love my Key Club Kids."

The Montrose Area Kiwanis is proud to have Mrs. Coddington as a member and equally pleased to be able to support her efforts as advisor to the Elk Lake Club.
