Two DSHS Students Advance to UIL CX Debate State Tournament

January 26, 2021


The Dripping Springs High School CX Debate team put together a strong showing at the district meet on Jan. 25 in Kerrville, competing against teams from Boerne Champion HS, Kerrville Tivy HS and Veterans Memorial HS.


Junior Katherine Mihaly and senior Jackson Kaiser won the meet with an undefeated 5-0 record and will advance to the UIL State Tournament. The tournament will be held virtually March 19-20. Both Mihaly and Kaiser are accomplished debaters for DSHS. In 2020, both qualified for the National Speech and Debate Association National Tournament, as well as the Texas Forensics Association State Tournament.


DSHS was the only school to advance more than one team to the elimination rounds as junior Eli Craddock and sophomore Reed Mohon placed third and the freshman team of Jackson Berthelsen and Zoe Costanza finished fourth.
