Don’t bother starting an argument with Miriam Pritschet or Nick Greatens unless you’re prepared to lose.

Pritschet, 14, a Brainerd High School ninth grader, and Greatens, 17, a BHS 11th-grader, both members of the BHS debate team, qualified at the district qualifying tournament Dec. 9-10 at St. Michael-Albertville Schools to compete at the 2011 National Forensic League National Tournament. 

The national tourney is planned for June 13-17 in Dallas.
