Boston University

On February 20th and 21st, Dartmouth drove down to the Boston University tournament. If you remember, the last time Dartmouth was at BU was for the Novice Tournament. Unlike the mildly confused and nervous debaters they were during fall term, the novices were now seasoned and prepared. Tim Goh showed the largest improvement from his fall term showing at BU with his break to Novice Finals. Tim had hybrided with Lucas Li from Brown University and after a brilliant debate against Yale in Semi-Finals, the team took 2nd place in the entire Novice division, dropping to a team from University of Chicago.
The other Dartmouth teams at the tournament were Joe Huston and Connor Beatty, Nathan Gusdorf and Maryam Zafer, and Carsten Hansen and David Silver. Prat Srivastava judged.
