College of Western Idaho (CWI) Speech and Debate continued a successful start to the 2014-15 season with a first-place Division III victory at the 84th-annual Mahaffey Memorial hosted by Linfield College in McMinnville, Ore. The competition, held Nov. 14-16, included 34 schools from the Northwest Forensics Conference. This marks the second consecutive year CWI has captured top Division III honors at the event.
“I cannot overstate how honored I am to be a part of this team” says Assistant Director of Forensics Jim Gatfield. “Of the 22 competitors, 19 are in their first year of college forensics, making this a truly impressive victory.”
CWI Speech and Debate will now focus on preparing for the spring semester of competitions.
