The Belvidere North Debate Team had a fantastic showing at the IHSA State Finals on March 15 and 16.

Johnathon Giesecke and Burke Cochran finished in third place in Public Forum, and also received All-State honors. 

Nick Goymerac finished twelfth place in the Lincoln-Douglas Debate. 

This is the first time that the BNHS program has had students place this high in multiple Debate divisions. It is also the first time in program history that North had two students receive All-State honors.
