Sophomore Angela Lytle, two year member of the Cinco Ranch Speech and Debate Team, competed in the Texas Forensic Association State Tournament on March 12. She took first place in Student Congress Senate.

“When they called my name at the award ceremony, I was elated,” Lytle said. “I hugged the girl next to me and almost began to cry.”

In Student Congress, students hold a mock Congress session and meet for two to three hours to draft legislation on important political and economic issues. The event requires a large amount of prior research and the ability to deliver speeches professionally and concisely.

Though she is not competing in Congress at the national championships, she will compete in the Foreign Extemporaneous speaking event, as she placed third in her National Speech & Debate district.

“Being the only sophomore to win this year, my title is extremely close to my heart,” Lytle said.
