Over 800 miles. Over 200 of the best debate teams in the entire country. This was the biggest competition of the entire fall semester. On the weekend of November 19th, three pairs of Rangers traveled to the cold city of Chicago for the Glenbrooks Invitational, Jesuit's largest debate tournament of the semester, and all three came away with winning records. The pair of Seniors...
As the saying goes, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Jesuit debate is no exception. With cunning counterplans and ready rebuttals, the Rangers have been dominating in the month of November. Jesuit students debated as far away as Los Angeles and as close as Hockaday this month, and their efforts yielded win after win. Two senior teams...
In an unfamiliar environment, under the pressure to win, many might shy away from the challenge, but debaters face these challenges every time they compete, traveling to meets and going up against the best of the best. Jesuit's debaters in particular performed under pressure in October, finishing strong in meets at St. Marks School of Texas and the University of...

After two days of ardent argumentation, three of Jesuit's teams came away with points counting...
A whopping 96 teams of students convened at Plano Senior High School on September 3rd, for the first debate tournament of the year. Jesuit achieved a closeout: students placed first, second and fifth! The Jesuit debate team performed very well at the tournament, with Beomhak Lee ’17 and Alandro Valdez ’17 and the team of seniors Jake LoRocco and Emmanuel...
Traveling across the country is quite unusual for high school athletics, and if it happens, it usually indicates an elite level of play from that particular team. The Jesuit debate team has gone to Los Angeles, Chicago, and now Orlando, completing their nationwide tour of a season. After their very impressive 3rd place finish at the Texas Forensics Association...
The Jesuit student walks up to the chestnut podium. He glares out to his wide audience, before looking to the right, to his opposition. Finally, he looks down at his notes, preparing to pick apart his opponents' argument. This was the scene when Jesuit's novice and JV debate teams traveled to Atlanta on March 16-20 to take on the nation's...
