Speech and Debate
For the past 47 years, no debate student from SWHS has ever advanced to Finals at the National Forensic League's National Speech/Debate Tournament. Spring Woods High School's Debate Program has ended a stellar year by making history! Senior Silverio placed 15th out of 250 students in Congressional Debate where he debated over 32 hours this past week at Nationals held in Dallas, Texas. Silverio had to compete and win locally at the competitive Space City National Forensic League in Houston before competing at Nationals.
No one in SBISD has ever advanced to Finals in Congressional Debate as well.
Junior Olympic Games
One of our Spring Woods High School tigers competed at this year's AAU Jr. Olympic games in New Orleans in track & field. Lauren Daniel captured the gold in the Young Women's shot put event, entitling her to the rank as Jr Olympic Champion and AAU All-American. Her 5th throw of 46 ft, 6 inches just missed the National Record of 47 ft, 7 inches. In the discus event, Lauren took home the silver medal just getting edged out of another gold by 4 inches with her toss of 148 ft, 11 inches.
