The consistency and excellence of Mullen’s Speech and Debate program continues to reach new heights.
Recently, the Mustangs’ S&D earned two more acknowledgements, and they are considerable.
For one, Mullen was cited for attending a national tournament for 50 years. For another, the Mustangs joined the organization’s Top 100 Club.
“Not a whole lot of schools have attended more than Mullen,” program coach Mike Trevithick said, “and, basically, they have a way of counting strong programs, which is based on the number of competition points students have earned. Schools are ranked based on that.
“Ever since we started coaching and under (the late) Frank (Sferra, nationally renowned in the field), we’ve had this distinction of being in the club. We’re basically in the top-seven percent of schools in the country. There’s a fairly small group of schools that are considered pretty elite competitors.”
