On our first policy tournament, the URDU traveled in two vans towards Rutgers University, where a variety of unexpected occurrences have, well, occurred!! We arrived a bit late for our encounter, hoping that all would go well for the team. Even though a bit unprepared, we have pulled off some incredible results! Cedric Bonsol and his swing partner finished as quarterfinalists , and team Matthew-Margeaux finished as octofinalists! In addition Cedric received the award for being the 7th best speaker in the JV division, Margeaux finished as the 5th best speaker for the novice division, and Matthew finished as the TOP SPEAKER for the novice division!!!
In other related news, some of the team members went to a diner after everyone got eliminated and had a bonding moment! Also, we had a spicy lunch on our second day while we were there!! The lunar eclipse was also a sight worth seeing! Overall great start to our policy competitors and we’re all hoping future tournaments would turn out to be even better!!
