Eighteen members of the Homer High School debate, drama and forensics team are back from a multi-school meet at Eagle River High School last weekend. Participating schools included East, South, Service, West, Eagle River and Chugiak high schools, as well as Homer.
“Homer did very well,” said Head Coach Amy Johnson. “I was very impressed with their performance, despite it being near the end of the semester with lots of other stress.”
Next up for the Homer DDF team is a tournament at Service High School on Jan. 16-17. The following weekend is the Homer tournament. Johnson is still looking for judges for that event. Experience is not necessary; training will be offered. Anyone interested can reach Johnson at 235-4667 or AJohnson@kpbsd.org.
