Based on audience response, the not-so-serious presidential debate hosted by the Carroll College Talking Saints forensics team Sunday was determined a tie.
In the end, the point of the debate wasn’t to declare winner, but rather to provide a venue for the team’s supporters to see the 18-time regional champions in action. The team travels for all its competitive meets.
“We have no home games,” forensics coach Brent Northrup said.
It's great to see the Carrol College Talking Saints doing this. It's a great organization over there.
I joined the team in 1989, the same year current coach Brent Northup took the reins of the organization. The four years I spent traveling the Northwest competing for the team gave me the skills I still use in my work life today.
Even in the early days, Brent started working on exhibitions and outreach to both the larger Carroll College and the Helena, MT communities. It's great to see these types of activities continuing.
And it's also great to see them getting some press.
