Alumni Update: Kentucky
Two Raider Debate Alumns Compete

Reuben Lack (Emory '16) and his former partner Anushka Panday (UGA '16) competed last weekend at Kentucky aka Ohio Valley II. There were over 141 teams from colleges and universities from around the country competing. Reuben went 5-3 and barely missed breaking on points. The last report I have on Anushka, she was 3-4 going into her final round. Keep making the Raider Debate family proud!

Chattahoochee Cougar Classic
Three Varsity Teams Finish as Octafinalists

Three Varsity teams broke at Chattahoochees first TOC bid tournament but all three failed to progress passed the Octafinal round. The team of Tucker Boyce & Chris Moxley was seeded 4th with a 5-1 record. Ji-yeon Hyn & Kal Thaokore and Aditya Sood & Alan Hesu finished their prelims with 4-2 records. Congrats on breaking at a TOC tournament. That a huge accomplishment!

In the JV Division, the team of Brian Cai & Torus Lu finished their prelims with a 4-2 record to be the 3rd seed but they, too, drop their first elimination round and finished as quarterfinalists. Nice job!

In the Novice Division, Tanuja Anne & Catherine Williams went 3-2 and won the Octa Final Round. We still have no idea how they did in their Quartfinal round. Stay tuned! Tanuka was also awared 14th Speaker. Congratulations.

Alumni Update: Georgia State
Four Raider Debate Alums Compete

Raider Debaters do not end their debate careers in high school. Some continue to compete at the collegiate level. This weekend four Raider Debate alums competed in the Georgia State National College Debate Tournament - the first major tournament of the year bringing nearly 100 teams into Atlanta. These former AHS students will also be accompanying our AHS team to numerous tournaments this year as judges and mentors. Reuben Lack ('12) and Neil Sethi ('10) are competing for Emory; Ricardo Saenz ('11) is competing for Georgia Tech; and Anushka Panday ('12) is competing for Georgia. College rules are only slightly different than high school. In college debate, teams get an extra minute in both constructive and rebuttals (9 and 6) as well as ten minutes for prepl. Cross-X remains only 3 minutes.


While Reuben and Anushka both went into the final round with a chance to break, both dropped the last round and finished 4-4. Neil and Ricardo both finished 3-5. Great job Raider Alums!

Johns Creek Novice Tournament
All teams win at least one round - one team goes 4-0.

The 2012-2013 Debate Season kicked off with the one day first year Novice Tournament at Johns Creek last Saturday and it was a wonderful successEvery team was able to win at least a single round. While this was not as serious a tournament as later tournaments this year will be, winning even a single round helps everyone get excited to improve.

The team of Daniel Linkahl & Chris Shifrin went 4-0 and were 3rd seed. Chris was also 14th speaker. Three additional teams went 3-1, two teams went 3-3 and three teams went 1-3. Vaibhav Kumar was awarded 18th Speaker. Great job to all of the Raider Debate Novices!

The next tournament for Novices, will be Chattahoochee later this month. The next tournament for JV and Varsity will be this weekend at Wake Forest University.

Summer Debate Camp Tournaments
Tucker & James Win Both Emory Summer Tournaments

Raider debaters at Emory University's National Debate Institute (ENDI) have already shown they are ready to make 2012-2013 a good one. Rising seniors and 4th year debaters Tucker Boyce & James Pitman defeated rising sophomore and 2nd year debater Kiyoshi Wollheater and his parter (not a Raider Debater) in the finals of the 6 week ENDI Tournament Finals. Tucker & James were top seed with a 6-0 record while Kiyoshi & partner were 2nd seed. Kiyoshi's oly losses were to Tucker & James. Other Raider Debaters also performed well including Ryan Hulett, Nicole Moxley, and Sahana Suhandra. Way to make the most of the summer!

Tucker & James teamed up for the two week ENDI Tournament earlier in the summer and went 6-0 to be named top team. Kiyoshi & partner went 4-2 (losing one round again to Tucker & James). Tucker was named 2nd Speaker and Kiyoshi was named 3rd Speaker. Nice job!

As we get news about other camp tournaments from around the country, we will continue to report on our Raider Debaters progress. There will not, however, be any scoreboards for these tournaments given their informal nature.
