WEST CALDWELL, NJ – Jessica Rizzo and Julia Tuck, sophomores at James Caldwell High School (JCHS) and members of the JCHS Forensics Team, have both qualified for the Grand National Tournament of the National Catholic Forensics League. The event will take place in Louisville, KY on Memorial Day Weekend.

The Grand National Tournament includes six forensics events and four debate events. In interpretation and speech, each student competes in four preliminary rounds on Saturday. During each round, students will compete against six others in front of three judges, who will rank all entries in their section.

The top 48 entries in each event advance to the octofinal rounds held on Sunday morning. Quarterfinal and semifinal rounds continue throughout the mid-morning and afternoon.

This is the second full year of competition for the JCHS Forensics Team, which is coached by Claudia Douris and Kathleen Ryan.

This is also the second year that Jessica Rizzo has qualified for the National Tournament. Last year, she qualified for and competed in the tournament held in Sacramento, CA.
