Emily Mercer and Teddy Yerxa: Emily and Teddy became the first El Camino Real team to go undefeated in Parliamentary Debate (“Parli”). Forty-seven teams entered the competition and only six of those teams finished undefeated. Further, for the second time in two weeks, Emily and Teddy had the most Speaker Points of all Parliamentary Debaters. Well done!
Hilda Velásquez-Galvez and Albert Tang: HIlda and Albert helped advance the team’s budding Parli program with a strong 2-1 showing for the day. The team of Marlon Poroj and Shawn Haq competed as well and were to pick up a victory in the third round.
