Over Meliora Weekend, while the worlds squad headed up to the Hart House IV, the University of Rochester Debate Union’s policy debate squad traveled one partnership to the beautiful United States Military Academy at West Point for a highly competitive invitational. The tournament offered great views of the Hudson River and even better competition.
The team of Nick Heitsch and Anne Cheng competed in the JV bracket with a fair amount of success, winning three of their preliminary rounds. They also were able get some really great feedback to carry on into the rest of the season and year. At the end of it all, the URDU’s contingent was able to eat a delicious sunday brunch in the famed West Point dining hall.
