BGA's Speech and Debate Team traveled to Henry County High School in Paris, Tennessee over the weekend and brought home an impressive victory from the Krider Invitational Tournament. It was the team's first championship of the 2018-2019 season with BGA students earning $400 in scholarships from the Rotary Club.
Speech and Debate Coach Cadi Kadlecek said, "I am really proud of the teamwork displayed by this group of young people. They support and encourage one another to do their best. Without the teamwork they display on a regular basis, the team wouldn't have these kinds of team wins." Congratulations to the Wildcat Speech Team!
