On the weekend of November 7th and 8th, Dartmouth teams headed to Boston to take part in the Tufts tournament. This tournament had a unique setup because it mandated that novice debaters pair up with varsity team members. Andrew Wansley, paired with Will Hix, said, "Novice and Varsity members had a great time debating at Tufts. Wonderful rounds and great experiences all around."
Other teams included Varsity Ben Lo and Novice Tim Goh, and (?)

As a brief description, British Parliamentary debate differs from the American style in that it incorporates four teams competing in hour long rounds, preparation time for a resolution unseen by both teams until ten minutes before a round, and a wider variety of accents.

On October 3rd and 4th, the Boston University Novice Tournament was the first to see the incredible potential of nine Dartmouth novice teams (one team was Brown-Dartmouth hybrid). Will Hix and Ryan Zehner broke to quarter-finals with a 4-0. Both also won recognition for their speaking abilities, with Will taking home the top speaker trophy and Ryan the 8th speaker award. Dartmouth had four teams-- Prat Srivastava and Campbell Miller, Natalie Burkhard and Tim Guo, ShanShan He and the Brown debater, Rohan Chaudhary and Maryam Zafer--with 3-1 records. Other teams included Carsten Hansen and Alex Lucey, Yand Wei and Jingna Zhou, David Silver and David Lumbert, Erich Hartfelder and Jeremey Kauffman. All the novice teams gained Dartmouth immense respect with the quality of their cases, arguments, and speaking skills. With more training from the great varsity members, the Dartmouth '12s will be fierce competition.

On March 7th and 8th, Sourabh Mishra ’10 and Marcus Gadson ’10, along with Tarang Agarwal ’11 (who debated with James Shapiro of Brown) made a cross-country trip to the Stanford Debate Tournament. For the first time in his last three competitions, Tarang did not make it to novice finals. That’s because he made the varsity break, going 4-1 on his way to a 3rd place varsity finish. Additionally, Tarang and James were the top novice team at the tournament. Sourabh and Marcus also went 4-1, finishing as the 4th place pair
A lot of trophies!
