Speech team success at Sac State

Byron Cordba and James Michaelson, two experienced members of the DVC speech team, participated in a cross-country speech and debate competition from March 5-7 at Sacramento State.


Cordba was proud that he and Michaelson had bested some students from larger, four year colleges in debates that forced him to, “talk like an auctioneer on cocaine.”


The two worked together like a tag team during the policy debate, competing against 15 other schools such as UC Davis, San Luis Obispo and even a school from Wisconsin, Cordba said.


The pair placed as one of the best 16 teams at the competition. In addition, Michaelson won an award for being the 13th best speaker at the event.
