In Mid-November the URDU’s policy team headed to two tournaments. While Emoni and Tobi headed to the Varsity debates at Wake Forest, K.Y. Chen, Salva Ken, Graeme McGuire, Nick Heitsch, Emmani Karra, and Anna Li headed to West Virginia University to debate in the Novice division.

The team had a great experience in the mountains of Morgantown. The unique scenery offered a beautiful view of life in the mountains of Appalachia, and the tournament offered great competition. Partnerships K.Y. and Salva, and Emmani and Anna both ended the tournament with a 2-4 record. Nick and Graeme went 5-1, seeding 2nd out of 47 teams in prelims, and making it to semifinals.

In addition Nick Heitsch was awarded 6th speaker out of 94 debaters in the Novice Bracket. Overall the team learned a lot, running into new arguments and challenging competition.

All told WVU was a solid ending of the Fall semester for our policy novices.
