When the word “dynasty” is thrown around, one generally thinks of sports. However, La Vernia has been quietly growing a different kind of dynasty.

During the past school year, the La Vernia Speech and Debate team has been claiming sweepstakes trophies at several tournaments and qualifying students to state.

The speech and debate team competes on four different circuits, UIL, the Texas Forensic Association, the National Forensic League, and the Tournament of Champions circuit. Typically the speech and debate team competes against much larger schools in most of these competitions.

In the fall, the focus of the team was on clinching spots to the Texas Forensic Association state tournament to be held in Amarillo this March. La Vernia has qualified more students than ever before.

The following students have qualified to the state tournament in public forum debate: Katelyn Tubbs, Krysten Hayes, Linzy Hill, Kara Gardner, Dustin Hurley, Kyle Ferguson, Reed Stevens, Jonathan Jupe, Esteban Rodriguez-Vazquez, Haley Czarnek, and Russell Staffy.

Additionally, four students have qualified to the state tournament in extemporaneous speaking, Haley Czarnek, Esteban Rodriguez-Vazquez, Kyle Ferguson, and Hunter Connally.

Esteban has also qualified to state in student congress.

In order to qualify for this tournament, students need to place multiple times in qualifying tournaments against mainly 5A competition.

“It is fun to be an underdog, because when you beat the competitors from other schools, they really take notice,” said Linzy Hill, a junior on the team. “Winning against schools that focus so much on forensics really gives me a sense of accomplishment,” added Krysten Hayes, another junior qualifier.

The team has also won sweepstakes at every UIL tournament this year.

The team is looking forward to competing at UIL district this March. “We are very proud of the success of the team and look forward to more accomplishments in the future,” said Dr. Tom Harvey, superintendent of La Vernia Independent School District.
