Last year, Paul Consalvo '16 and Evan Rabenold '16 decided to take on Duo Interpretation, a category of Speech and Debate competition that would allow them to, as a pair, put their own mark on a script.
The results at first were good. Then they got better. Lately, they have been great.
Saturday (Jan. 30) at Wharton High School, Consalvo and Rabenold performed their piece from the movie "Good Will Hunting" and aced it, taking first place at the Florida Sunshine National Speech and Debate Association event.
As such, Consalvo and Rabenold earned a spot at the NSDA National Tournament in June in Salt Lake City. There, they will compete against the best in Duo Interpretation from around the country.
However, there are several local and regional Speech and Debate competitions before then, most notably this Saturday (Feb. 6) as Jesuit's Speech and Debate team hosts a Florida Forensic League competition. The event begins at 8:00am and runs throughout the day in the cafeteria, the library, and buildings 1, 2, 3, and 6, with awards at 5:30pm.
The competition includes: Policy Debate, U.S. Extemporaneous, Dramatic Interpretation, Lincoln Douglas Debate, International Extemporaneous, Humorous Interpretation, Public Forum Debate, Original Oratory, Oral Interpretation, Student Congress, Duo Interpretation, and Group Interpretation.
