Debaters Earn TOC Bids in Newman Tournament
The Debate Team completed a great weekend at the Newman Invitational Debate Tournament. In Public Forum debate, the team of junior Rishab Chimmanamada and sophomore Mayank Mardia won 1st place, earning the first Tournament of Champions (TOC) bid of their careers. In LD, senior Jim Huang finished in 5th place after conceding in quarterfinals so a friend could earn a TOC bid.
Debate team coach Ian Gunn ’07 thanks alumni Brent Toca ’04 and Ian Jorgensen ’08 and to mother of an alumnus, Sarah Simoneaux, who helped fill Jesuit’s judging obligation in the tournament.
