Sure, don't include it if it's a one page resume or if you're using it to compensate for a lack of accomplishment in college. Most of the schools I applied to encouraged applicants not to limit their resume to one page. I felt that winning several national circuit tournaments with more than 200 competitors was an accomplishment well worth throwing at the bottom of the second page. Especially since success in debate hints at several qualities of a successful law student. It won't be a major addition to the application, but I definitely can't imagine it hurting you.I'm hoping throwing around HS titles will distract adcomms from everything I didn't do in college.
I have no regrets about college. 4 jobs, community service, fraternity leadership, student organizations, tutoring, etc. Average softs, but I definitely had plenty to talk about in my resume outside of high school.
