Coyote Classic CSU San Bernardino


Point Loma Debaters took first place at a small but tough competition hosted by C S U San Bernardino this past weekend. Point Loma posted 24 sweepstakes points to capture First Place Sweepstakes. UCLA had 14 points for Second Place. Long Beach City College, USC, and CSU Long Beach won Third through Fifth Place honors.
Josh Cangelosi won third place in the original poetry competition. The rest of the tournament was all debate. This years Novices did quite well. The novice division advanced to Semi Finals after the six preliminary rounds. The top four teams advancing were all four from Point Loma, so we closed out the event and no elimination rounds were held in this division meaning the following four PLNU teams all tied for first place.
Jaimie Augustine and Holly Lavagnino
Jared Callahan and LeAnn Wiley
Troy Funk and Dominique Marino
Carissa Phillips and David Purinton
These four teams debated for a combined 24 preliminary rounds, losing only three between them. Pt Loma debaters also swept the top five speaker awards announced.
Novice Speaker Awards:
5th Holly Lavagnino
4th LeAnn Wiley
3rd Carissa Phillips
2nd Dominique Marino
1st Troy Funk
Last years novices did pretty well too in the Senior Division. Sarah Barnes won 7th place speaker award. And the teams of Rachel Williams and Brad Lindenmeyer, and Shannon Hutchison and Chelsea Hettrick advanced to the Quarter Finals. That means each of the students participating in this tournament won individual honors and shared in the Sweepstakes Victory. Thanks for your continued support of this intercollegiate academic activity and your encouragement of the team members in your classes. Thanks too to Kathleen Czech for her help in the coaching, judging and administration of the team.
