Nine Colgate debaters headed to New Haven Connecticut for the Yale IV, from October 19th-21st, 2012.
Competing in the tournament were the teams of Srikar Gullapalli ’13 and Alexa Windsor ’13, Madeline Allen ’16 and Emily Luba ’16, and Michaela Vebrova ’16 and Kevin Costello ’16. Melissa Haller ’16, Asabi Rawlins ’16, and Leah Robinson ’16 attended as judges.
Debating motions ranging from squatters’ rights, to the bases for scholarships, all three Colgate Teams finished strong. Alexa and Srikar finished with 9 points, Emily and Madeline with 5, and Kevin and Michaela with 3.
The Yale tournament was a great learning experience for the novice debaters and a solid performance for the more experienced.
