Valley College Lincoln Douglas Debate

Friday, October 21, 2011 (All day)

Just a quick note to report on the results of the Irvine Valley College Lincoln Douglas Debate tournament held Friday October 21, 2011. 


During this past Friday (Fall Break), PLNU entered 5 students in the open division of Lincoln Douglas (LD) Debate, a division of one on one debate that looks into one topic for the entire year.  The LD topic this year focuses on Foreign Trade with China.  Team Parliamentary Debate on the other hand typically has two partners, and the topic changes from round to round, with 20 minutes advance notice of what the topic will be prior to when the debate commences. 


All five PLNU entries won medals.  Here are the specific outcomes.


Ben Carney – Bronze Medal

Frank Daniel – Bronze Medal

Kasey Graves – Bronze Medal

Sydney Awakuni – Bronze Medal

Kayla Cook – Silver Medal


Thanks too to Ian Sharples, McKayla Carpenter and Ryan Willey who helped by judging at the tournament.
