In New York: Ricky Young & Adam Martin competed at the Bronx Round Robin, an invitation only extended to 8 teams in the country. And after that, the boys earned a winning record at the New York City Invitational and advanced to elimination rounds where they were knocked out on a controversial 2-1 decision. Additionally Ricky was named 4th speaker at the tournament and Adam 18th, out of 170 high school debaters from across the country.
And in California: At the Cal State Fullerton tournament, in Varsity, Brittany Gamlen & Sky Doble were 5-1 in prelims and advanced to elimination rounds.
