Anatolia Debate Team at the Moraitis Cup
On January 18 th , Anatolia’s debate team ventured to Athens for the 10 th annual Moraitis Cup tournament, with four teams of two battling against 68 other teams from many Athenian schools. All four teams performed very well, but particular mention must go to Dimitra Ouzouni and Markella Xanthopoulou, who placed in seventh after four rounds of debate, thus qualifying for the semi-finals. In addition to debate, the tournament also featured impromptu speaking. Despite no prior practice in this event, Christos Koubotis excelled and made the finals.
Overall, the weekend was intense, fun and rewarding for all. Coaches Harrison and Clarke have been very impressed with the enthusiasm and commitment of the debate club this year. Such strong performances in a highly competitive tournament bode extremely well for the future!
