Damien brothers win national debate championship
Damien High School freshmen brothers Brandon and Maddox Park won the 35th First Year Debate National Championship in policy debate on March 19 at Woodward Academy in Atlanta, Georgia. The brothers won four of six preliminary round debates and did not drop a single ballot across four elimination matches, going a perfect 12 for 12 en route to the championship.
It is the first national title for Damien since 2009.
The team was coached by Chris Parades, St. Lucy’s director of debate, Damien’s associate director of debate, and a 2004 Spartan alumnus, in addition to Brandon and Maddox’s older brother Luke, a junior at the school.
