Dartmouth Wins Tufts!

On November 9th and 10th, three Dartmouth teams participated in the Tufts University debate tournament. Tufts was a "Pro-Am" which means that each team was comprised of one varsity debater and one novice debater. This format gave our less seasoned team members some great experience and it also made for a very competitive tournament. The team of Andrew Wansley '10 and Mostafa Heddaya '11 emerged from the pack with a 4-1 record. The pair then won a string of impressive victories in out rounds to make it to the final round, where they defeated a very strong Yale team to take home first place. Andrew also earned the 3rd place varsity speaker award. With their victory, both Andrew and Mostafa have now qualified for Nationals, which takes place in the spring.

The Parliamentary Debate team is currently preparing to host the Dartmouth Winter Invitational tournament which will take place January 11-12.
