El Camino College and Claremont Open Invitational in Claremont

Just a quick update on the PLNU Debate Team activities this past weekend. We sent teams to the PSCFA Warm Up Scrimmage at El Camino College and to the Claremont Open Invitational in Claremont.
Three of the teams sent to the El Camino Tournament went undefeated and earned Awards of Superiority for their efforts. Congratulations to the Novice teams of Shon Eizenhoefer and Jason Filizetti, and Daniella Mekus and Katie Wrench, and the Junior Team of Judah Israel Michael and Ben Wagner.
At the much larger Claremont Open two of our teams earned 5 wins, which would normally be sufficient to advance to the elimination rounds. At this tournament though the director chose to advance half of the normal field or the top 16 teams. Point Loma had the 17th and 18th teams. 

Congratulations to Troy Funk and LeAnn Wiley, and Jay Selnick and Gene Yonemoto for their winning records.
We now have a few weekends off before the next tournament at Azusa Pacific. Thanks for your continued support of the team and our students. And thanks to Prof Kathleen Czech for all her work with the team.
