The Red Oak High School Cross-Examination Debate team competed at the UIL District 10-5A meet on Saturday, Jan. 27 and placed second, qualifying them to compete at the State UIL competition in March.

Only two teams from each district qualify to compete at state.

“Luke and Mykala have worked all year to reach this point,” debate sponsor Rachel Grandstaff said. “I am beyond proud of how hard they have worked to achieve their goal.”

These students will compete March 15-17 at the University of Texas in Austin.
