On October 30-31, nine members of the Dartmouth Parli team spent part of their Halloween weekend in Medford, Ma for the Tufts tournament. This was arguably the team's most successful tournament of the year thus far, with two pairs breaking out of a field of nearly 80 teams. Tarang Agarwal '11 and Marcus Gadson '11 finished as the 7th place team, while Joe Huston '10 and Andrew Wansley '10 advanced to semi-finals, finishing 4th overall. Joe finished as the 4th place varsity speaker and Marcus finished 10th. Also competing at the tournament were Connor Beatty '10, Campbell Miller '12, Richard Asala '13, Aditya Talwani '13, and Jacob Hickson '13

On October 16th-17th, Connor Beatty '10 & Tim Goh '12 and Jon Choi '11 & Chris Kendig '10 went to Vassar college for their annual debate tournament. Both pairs had solid tournaments and individually, Chris was the 7th novice speaker at the tournament.


On October 9th-10th, Dartmouth sent a large contingent down to the Harvard tournament in Cambridge, MA. As in previous years, Harvard was one of the biggest and deepest tournaments of the year, with nearly 150 teams participating in the competition. Andrew Wansley '10 and Connor Beatty '10 went 4-1, earning a spot in octo-finals, where they lost to MIT. Marcus Gadson '10 and Tarang Agarwal '12 were also in the running for the break before dropping in a bubble round. Also in attendance at the tournament were Anuj Gupta '13, Ishita Kala '13, Jacob Hickson '13, Valentina Semenova '13, Claire Kim '13, Sahil Joshi '13, Adaitya Talwai '13, Richard Asala '13, Amy Zhang '13 and Rachael Wang '13. For most of our novices, this was their first collegiate tournament, so it was a great learning experience for them. Here are some pictures of the team!
