Kayhi debate team places second at state

Ketchikan High School performed well in last weekend’s Debate Drama and Forensics state competition in Anchorage.

According to Coach Dan Ortiz, Ketchikan entered three teams in the Public Forum Debate category, which had a total of 31 teams competing.

Two of the Kayhi teams made it to the semi-final round, and one of those teams — Cheyenne Matthews and Sam Ortiz – made it into the final debate. They lost by just one vote in the final round to a team from West Anchorage.
