This spring, BeJay Mugo ’22 and Mae Johnson ’22 again went undefeated in the first three rounds of the latest Connecticut Middle School Debate League (CMSDL) tournament, held April 21 at the Eastern Middle School in Greenwich.

BeJay and Mae earned enough points to compete in the final round of the top two teams. They spoke on “This House believes that artificial intelligence will do more harm than good.” The team earned the second place spot out of 81 debate teams and BeJay came in first in Speaker Points out of 243 speakers.

This being the final tournament of the season, the debating torch was passed to Kayce Campurciani ’24 and Lexi Donshik ’24 who competed in their first debate tournament. The Middle School Debate Team began in 2014 and has become an important club on campus.
