Eric Baker Leads the Debate

Erik Baker ’08, president of the ETHS Debate Team, made it to the 16th round of the Mid-America Cup, a debate competition held in September at Valley High School in Des Moines. Erik’s success earns him a bid, ETHS’s first ever, in the Tournament of Champions which brings together some of the most competitively successful debaters. In November, competing at the Glenbrooks invitational, in a field of over 200 schools from 32 states, Erik reached the quarterfinals of Lincoln Douglas Debate.
