Qualifying for state speech and debate competitions is a tradition at Moffat County High School that spans longer than co-coach Eric Hansen can remember. “It’s been a long time since Moffat County hasn’t taken somebody to state,” said Hansen, also an MCHS social studies teacher. The team will continue the tradition later this month. Juniors Morgan Carrico, Ben East, Matt Balderston and Rose Howe, along with seniors Skyler Leonard and Cullen Dilldine, earned a berth at state during a district competition Feb. 24 and 25 in Durango.
