EL Forensics Team Keeps On Rolling

The Elk Lake Forensics Team kept on winning at the LaSalle Forum Tournament on December 11 at LaSalle College High School in Wyndmoor, PA.

Pictured above, EL Forensics Team place-winners at the LaSalle Forum Tournament: Richard Guiton, 8th place in Varsity LD Debate; Austin Cohen, 3rd place in Varsity LD Debate; Shea Skinner, 6th place in Varsity LD Debate; EL Forensics Director Keith Brosious.

All three Lincoln-Douglas debaters placed in the top 8 at the tournament.

The team was led by sophomore Austin Cohen who compiled an undefeated 3 win and 0 loss record in the preliminary rounds. This earned him a place in the Semi-Finals against Zachary Taylor, the defending State Champion, from JM Barrack Hebrew Academy.

Cohen lost a split decision to Taylor and placed third overall in Varsity LD Debate.

Senior Shea Skinner and junior Richard Guiton compiled 2 win and 1 loss preliminary round records and placed 6th and 8th respectively in Varsity LD Debate.

“This was a very impressive performance at a very competitive tournament,” commented EL Forensics Director Keith Brosious.

The three varsity LD debaters wrap up the first half of the season with a record of 50 wins and only 9 losses.

The team will travel to Shikellamy High School on January 8 to compete at the annual Blue, Maroon, and White Invitational Tournament.
