The Region 1 parliamentary debate duo of Leland Joseph Chen & Charles Tang defeated Region 3 power Oxford Academy Nick Hwangbo & Loren Park in the final round to win the 2014 California High School Speech Association State Tournament hosted by James Enochs High School in Modesto, California.

Chen & Tang's road to victory got off to a rocky start with a defeat to El Dorado High School, but the pari quickly regrouped and ran off five straight victories to advance to the elimination rounds where they dropped powerhouse Dougherty Valley Konath & Wang in quarters and South Torrance's Ruben & Tirumala in sems before squaring off against Oxford Academy in finals.
