Results from BU and Stanford

Although most of the team was busy with finals the past few weeks, a few debaters were able to find the time to compete each of the past two weekends. On February 29th-March 1st, Joe Huston ’10 and Andrew Wansley ’10 went down to Boston to compete in the Boston University tournament. Joe and Andrew compiled a 4-1 record, but finished just outside the break.

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


Tarang and James: 1st place novice + 3rd place varsity =
A lot of trophies!
