Great Neck North High students had great success in the Westchester Classic Debate Tournament at Lakeland High School recently. The tournament, which hosts schools from all over the east coast, saw debaters Daniel Kim and Matthew Weinstein become quarter-finalists, capturing fourth- and fifth-place top speakers, respectively.

This is not the first tournament in which Great Neck North debaters have left their mark in the debate world. At the American Debate League Fall Classic, they were both the second-place advance team and first-place novice high school teams. Great Neck North also captured the team sweepstakes award. The dynamic duo of Kim and Weinstein won second place at the South Shore Debate League.

The Great Neck North Debate Team became the Novice High School Division sweepstakes winners at the American Debate League Fall Winter Classic.

North High joined the American Debate League this year and has been one of the most successful teams in the league. Other schools interested in joining the American Debate League and/or starting a debate team, can contact Richard Connelly at or 646-883-0123, and can learn more at
