After passing the challenging tryout phase, two more Ateneo de Manila High School students have earned slots in the Philippine national debating team. Incoming AHS sophomores Renz Reyes and Luigi Alcañeses- both from A2017- were chosen in late April to be members of the Philippines’ national debate team, where they are the team's youngest members. Renz joins fellow Atenean France Santos of A2015 on the team’s main roster while Luigi is an alternate. Team Philippines will compete in the prestigious World Schools Debating Championship (WSDC) to be held in Bangkok, Thailand in August.
