Debate Team at Columbia University

From Debate Team Advisors Kacy Kalell and Dana DePaul:

Last weekend (January 20th-22nd) the Debate team traveled to Columbia University to compete in a National Debate Tournament.  The participants did really well with every team winning at least one round.  The team of Domenic Jancaterino and Ornella Ebongue won four rounds and made it to the out rounds. Domenic and Ornella finished the tournament in 17th place out of 98 teams. We have attached a picture of the group that participated in the tournament. We are really proud of the team's performance and are looking forward to them building upon their success.

The team has begun their planning and preparation for their next tournament, which will be on February 11th at Shrewsbury High School.  The resolution for debate at that tournament will be: "Resolved: The United States should lift its embargo against Cuba."
