The team of Nicholas Mancini & Giorgio Rabbini WIN the NDCA National Championship held at the Marist School in Atlanta, Georgia in the Policy Division. Simultaneously, they were the recipients of the Baker Award, which is awarded to the #1 Policy Debate Team in the nation in the regular season (tabulated through results at tournaments from September to February). With these accomplishments, they have reached some historic heights: Giorgio is the FIRST African American student to ever win EITHER the Baker Award for Season-Long Excellence OR the NDCA National Championship in history, let alone both. Mancini/Rabbini is the first team to simultaneously win the Baker and the NDCA National Championship since 2007. They are North Broward's FIRST national champions in speech and debate. We are extremely proud of these two juniors' work ethic and success this year.
