Results from the Brown University Tournament and the Vassar College Tournament

On October 12-13, the Dartmouth Parliamentary Debate team attended two tournaments. The team split up, sending three teams to Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island and three teams to Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY.

The field at Brown was deep and talented, with many of the top debaters in the north-east in attendance. Despite the stiff competition, the Dartmouth squad had a strong showing, led by Andrew Wansley '10 and Ben Lo '10 who complied a 4-1 record. Andrew and Ben broke to quarterfinals, where they earned another impressive victory on their way to a 4th place finish at the tournament. The Brown tournament also provided an opportunity for novices Danny Kim '11, Zack Stolzenberg '11, Jorden Osterman '11, and Austin Zheng '10 to gain some valuable debating experience.

The other half of the team also had a successful weekend. At Vassar, Sourabh Mishra '10 and Connor Beatty '10 got off to a strong start before finishing with a 3-2 record, which was good for 5th place overall at the tournament. Novices Tarang Agarwal '11 and Jason Lester '11 placed 3rd among novice teams, with Tarang taking home 2nd place novice speaker. Reyad Allie '11 and Michael Marcusa '11 also had a solid tournament, considering their three losses came against the top three teams at the tournament.

The team did not attend any tournaments last weekend, as it was homecoming here at Dartmouth. However, we are in the midst of an in-house tournament, which has been a fun way to improve and prepare for upcoming competitions.
