Four students from C.K. McClatchy High School’s speech and debate programs have qualified for the national Tournament of Champions in Lexington, Kentucky.

The tournament is the most prestigious high school debate event in the country. Qualification to the tournament makes the two CKM teams among the top 72 – out of thousands — in the nation.

To help defray the costs of the tournament, the team has created a GoFundMe page for donations.

Debaters headed to Kentucky are: Abigail Norton, Tony Hackett, Nate Fleming and Eric Boettner.
