The Whitefish speech and debate team found their groove at Polson over the weekend.

The team took second in sweepstakes points, ahead of the hosting Pirates but behind Columbia Falls.

Aidan Reid led the team with a first-place finish in original oratory.

Elizabeth Campbell and Bethany Barnes took second and third respectively in informative, while Grace Benkelman took second in memorized public address.

Logan Mercer also took second in humorous interpretation and the duo of Abby Lowry and Ivan Cline took third in policy debate.

This week Whitefish will host the Western A divisional tournament.

Head coach Sara Mueller said she saw obvious improvements across the board in Polson, placing five debate teams in the top eight.
