Event Date - February 4-6, 2011

On behalf of the Pt Loma Speech and Debate team, I wanted to send out a belated thanks to the entire PLNU campus community for your help and patience in hosting the Sunset Cliffs Classic and Round Robin Tournament of Champions recently.  These two tournaments were held on our campus Feb 4-6.  The 44  Colleges and Universities listed below came out and seemed to have a wonderful time enjoying our beautiful campus.  We greatly appreciate the assistance of so many of the staff, faculty and alumni that make this possible.  As you can imagine many envied us the ability to come here every day, and several of those folks are looking into applying here for future years. Students that it.  I don’t think any of the other coaches are putting in for my job yet. J

 

Two of our Pt Loma teams advanced at this competitive event, which has been nicknamed the blood bath at the beach due to the high caliber of competition.  Congratulations to Ian Sharples and Ashley Nuckels for reaching the first elimination round and to Daniel Nadal and James Wilson for advancing to the second elimination round.  Our other four senior teams entered had enough earned wins to advance to elimination rounds, but they missed advancing on the speaker point tie breaker.  This speaks well of our chances at the National Championships coming up soon.

 

And in the burying the lead category we just recently learned that PLNU is once again ranked in the top 10 colleges and universities in the nation competing for the year long sweepstakes race.  We are  currently ranked in the #7 spot, against all  competitors, like UCLA, Ca Berkeley, etc. . . regardless of school size or division.

 

Thanks again for your continued support and encouragement.
