Celebrating Natick Speech & Debate Wins!
Posted on 06/03/2021


Natick Speech & Debate competed in the NCFL National Championship over Memorial Day weekend. The team worked hard and their work was rewarded with impressive results! In order to even compete at this prestigious tournament, team members had to qualify by placing among the top students at the qualifying tournament. Natick had 14 students qualify for Nationals. All fourteen worked hard and represented themselves, their team, and the school well! Several of our students also earned awards at the event. We are very proud of all of them for their hard work!

A special shoutout goes to Junior Lianna Paglia, who was named NATIONAL CHAMPION in Dramatic Performance! Lianna is the fourth student in team history to accomplish this momentous achievement!
