    The William Tennent High School Speech and Debate Team participates in tournaments sponsored by or affiliated with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Debate League (SPDL), Philadelphia Catholic Forensic League (PCFL), Pennsylvania High School Speech League (PHSSL), National Catholic Forensic League (NCFL) and National Speech and Debate Assocation.
