Bayport Blue-Point High School’s debate club participated in their second Long Island Forensic Association competition at Ward Melville High School. With the possibility of making the state championships this coming April on the line, the four debaters burst out of their silos. Gabriel Ross joined returning debaters Milo Fallon, Dillon Duffy, and Jack Harrington as they debated the proposition that “States ought to eliminate their nuclear arsenals” for the second time. Judging other competitors were the Debate Club advisers John Limperatos and Sean Meade, as well as parent volunteer David Fallon.
The Bayport Blue-Point team allied themselves with the three debaters from the Sayville debate team in preparation and representation, rounding out their combined effort to take on schools such as Jericho, Cold Spring Harbor, Great Neck South and Ward Melville.
Each team will be sending representatives to the state championship at Hofstra University. Two Sayville Debaters will debate at the junior varsity level and Bayport Blue-Point will be represented by Milo Fallon at the varsity level. Milo Fallon took second place overall at the varsity level at Ward Melville. The team’s debaters each won rounds for the day as well.
