Brimmer was named Top Speaker and said she is thrilled to compete with the best of the best in the state of Texas.
"You get to hear different arguments and points of view about your topics," she said. "This experience has enabled me to apply these lessons to my life, not just the debate room."
It will be a return to Austin for both Brimmer and O'Connor, as this marks their third trip to state.
"It is amazing to be part of a team that works so hard," said O'Connor. "We learn so many things from this experience. We learn how to critically think, which is a critical skill for any career."
CX debate is a form of UIL academic competition in which teams of two advocate for and against a resolution that typically calls for policy change by the United States federal government.
Also referred to as policy debate — or cross-examination debate because of the three-minute questioning period following each constructive speech — one team presents a proposal, with the other team arguing against the resolution.
