Roxbury High School Debate Team wins Northwest Debate League Championship

The Roxbury High School Debate Team won the Northwest Debate League Championship for the first time in decades on February 16, 2017.

The competition included sixteen teams from eight schools that came together at the defending champs turf West Morris Central High School in Chester, New Jersey.

RHS Debate Team Championship (pictured above from left to right): Talia Atanasio (Gr 10), Chris Lange (Gr 10), James Morley (Gr 11), Brody Hageneder (Gr 9), and Anavil Patel (Gr 11).

Both the Roxbury Negative and Affirmative teams advanced to the final rounds by winning two rounds each. Roxbury’s negative team won their third round against the Sparta Affirmative team but were sidelined by one point to allow the Affirmative Roxbury team to represent Roxbury in the final championship round against the Jefferson Township High School Negative team.

“It was brutal battle for first place, as the Jefferson Negative team had discovered a Wall Street Journal article that very morning that seemingly destroyed Roxbury’s affirmative plan. Yet, Roxbury junior James Morley did not allow this explosive evidence to distress him. He managed to find a way to not only address this damaging evidence but used Jefferson’s last minute find to support his argument creating an advantage,” explained Elizabeth Heddy, RHS Debate Team advisor.

James Morley and Talia Atanasio were victorious and won the Northwest Debate Leagues’ ChampionshipJames Morley and Talia Atanasio were victorious and won the Northwest Debate Leagues’ Championship. According to the trophy, which was brought to the high school for safekeeping, there has not been a Roxbury Championship win since before 1987, at least 30 years ago!

Not only did the Roxbury team win the championship, they completed a record-breaking 2016/2017 season, sweeping the Northwest Debate League’s awards ceremony with an unprecedented domination of both the Affirmative and Negative sides of the debate.

Junior Anavil Patel and sophomore Chris Lange were the first place Negative team, winning 12 rounds in the regular season. Patel won third place individual Negative Speaker Award and Atanasio won second place as an individual Affirmative Speaker.

Special honors were also achieved. Atanasio won Novice Debater of the Year by scoring 183 points in the regular season.

“Very few first year debaters compete at the varsity level, Talia really proved herself as a force to be reckoned with this year,” according to Heddy.

Morley also broke records by achieving his second Speaker of the Year Award in a row.

“This is unprecedented as the award has historically been won by senior debaters. Morley has the ability to break his own record if he takes this greatest of honors again next year,” shared Heddy.

The team had a supporting group of students who worked behind the scenes including Patricia Lalo, Storm Moeller, and Brody Hageneder.

Heddy went on to say, “The team would like to thank all of the administrators, staff, and teachers who have supported their quest, especially Mr. Swanson, Mr. Mason, Mrs. Dzurina, Mrs. Morris, Mrs. Jasiecki, and Mrs. Presti.”
