Great Alaska Speak Out
The PLNU Forensics team has just returned from its first tournament of the year. We were fortunate enough to be asked to compete with a field of 10 of the top 2 person debate teams from across the country in an elite round robin tournament hosted by the University of Alaska at Anchorage, The Great Alaska Speak Out. The team of David Graham and Jenni Burgess advanced to the Semi Final Round where they defeated the top seeded Oregon State University. They then dropped to the University of Denver in the Final Round, coming in Second Place in a very difficult field. Jenni was also awarded an elaborately designed Ulu knife, a native artifact, as a speaker award.
