Lobo debaters headed to state … again
Longview High School juniors Seema Brimmer and Trevor O’Connor will compete for statewide Cross Examination Debate honors for the second consecutive year.
The pair is set to compete on March 19-21 in Austin after placing in the 15-5A meet at Mt. Pleasant High School on Feb. 6.
Brimmer and O’Connor are no strangers to winning academic competitions. The two won the Impromptu Resolutions category at Stephen F. Austin University’s Model UN competition in 2011 – when they were Foster Middle School students. (O’Connor wonBest Delegate at that same meet.) In addition to bringing home numerous awards from area and regional UIL meets, they took 12-5A’s top honors in 2014 for Cross Examination Debate.
They are coached by Bethany Venable, who is also Longview High School’s technical theatre director.
