Azusa Pacific University Tournament


The Point Loma Speech and Debate team won Second Place Sweepstakes Honors this weekend. We were competing against 36 colleges and universities at Azusa Pacific University. 4 Year competitors included traditional rivals such as Berkeley, Cal State Long Beach, the Claremont Colleges, USC, UCLA, UCSD, etc., as well as other Christian colleges like Biola and Cal Baptist.
Eight of the twelve teams we entered advanced to the elimination rounds, most others just missed on the tie breaker of speaker points. Two of our teams (Novices Shon Eizenhoefer and Shawna Songer, and Juniors Troy Funk and Dominique Marino) went undefeated in preliminary rounds. The Senior Division team of Shannon Hutchison and Janae Parker won First Place and beat the national champions from Berkeley in the Final Round.
Special thanks go out to Prof. Kathleen Czech, Adjunct Becky Johnson, and alumni David Graham, Joelle Pendergrass, Jason Anderson and Josh Cangelosi for their hard work with the team.
