Tri-County Forensic League: Congress State Qualifier
(February 28, 2015)
El Camino entered the Student Congress State Qualifier with ten of the 81 debaters in the competition. Five from our team, Marlon Poroj; Shawn Haq; Teddy Yerxa; Gabriel Salazar; and Madinah Majib made it to the Semi-Finals Round. The mix of Elco veterans and first-year competitors in this round reflected the powerful presence the team has had in the Southland all year long. While it would have been great to see all of them make it to the Finals round, that was not to be. Marlon and Teddy (not pictured) made the cut and ended up being awarded Student Congress seats in the California High School Speech Association 2015 State Tournament. Marlon’s 3rd Place finish (out of 81) led the team.
