SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit High School Speech and Debate Team hosted the Borelli Memorial Tournament -- honoring and named after the late forensics coach Vincent Borelli -- on the Kent Place Boulevard campus, with Hiltopper Varsity Team members working diligently throughout the day-long tourney in concessions, at the ballot and information tables, along with serving as runners and hall monitors.
