Congratulations to the Teurlings Catholic High


Speech and Debate Team. They  won the Louisiana High School Speech League's 2012 State Championship Saturday night.

Two other Acadiana are schools shone in the competition as well.  Comeaux High School placed 3rd, and Lafayette High School tied for second place.   Three Teurlings students won individual state championships. They were Nicholas Chu, Jon Melancon, and Hilary Bonhomme.

"This championship is a testament to the hard work, dedication and tenacity of this team. We were far from the largest team in the state, but I am humbled by the commitment of these students to achieve this goal.  Saturday night was a momentous occasion for these students and our school and I am proud to have been able to help them carry on a proud tradition at Teurlings."   - Teurlings Head Coach Samantha Debevec
