It might not be every day that an intermediate school debate team gets mentioned in the media, but the Orinda Intermediate School Debate Team has earned that right.
The OIS Debate Team is the top public middle school debate team in the country after competing in the National Middle School Debate Tournament in Los Angeles. The team finished second overall in the country behind Chaminade College Prepatory, a private school.
OIS students Noah Bostick, Andrew Bower and Sean McFeely were the top team.
The complete OIS Debate Team came back to Orinda with a total of 10 trophies from the tournament.
