It was the first year for most students in the Tulsa Debate League to compete at the Regional qualifier to the State tournament, and the results were impressive - TDL teams finished as the top two seeds to State in 5A CX debate, in addition to strong showings in other events. Tulsa East Central's Raeleigh Pulliam and Stephanie Arechiga-Lopez finished first in debate, while Tulsa Central's Brian Cain and Koran McCrary finished second. Tulsa East Central's Johnathan Duckett and Rachel Wolfe were first alternate. Johanna Garcia qualified to State in poetry, while Raeleigh won Dramatic Interpretation and Original Oratory.
