Flathead rebounds, takes first at Helena tourney

December 18, 2018

Flathead High School Speech and Debate prevailed at the Helena City of Gold tournament over the weekend.

Flathead earned 186 overall points, surpassing Bozeman’s 156, for the win. Glacier High School placed third with 135.5 overall points.

Six individual champions helped bring home the hardware for the Flathead Braves.

“It was great to see the kids bounce back this weekend after a disappointing finish in Bozeman,” Flathead Head Coach Shannon O’Donnell said. “Helena is a great sneak peek at what the state competition might be like, since Helena is limited to the AA teams. Hopefully, our kids can continue to work and improve throughout the second half of our season.”
