Members of Irvington High School’s Debate Club earned awards at the American Debate League Winter Classic, held on December 10 at Martin Van Buren High School in Queens. They competed against students from more than 20 area high schools.

Elliot Riseman and Maxwell Ma earned fifth place in the JV public forum, while Riseman also finished fourth in the overall best speaker awards for the division. Maren Piersol and Tane Kim won the JV division and finished in second and first place, respectively, for best speaker awards. In addition, novice debaters Harlan Flamm and Mohun Desai and first-time debaters Lucy Acherakar and Max Bloom had an outstanding performance.
