DC Debaters Begin Spring Tournament Season with Gusto
The DC Debating Team turned in a strong
performance at the first intercollegiate debating tournament of the season
hosted at SUNY-Rockland on Sunday, March 17.
While veteran members Kate
Anderson and Chris Bronson and rookie members Briana Johnston and
Nathaniel McAuliffe performed well, missing out placing by just a couple
of points, the team’s newest member Bianca Tingson turned in a great
Debating solo, because her partner had a family
emergency, Bianca debated against a series of two-person teams from other area
colleges and universities, walking away with a fourth-place trophy. Her
performance will undoubtedly go down in the annals of the DC Debating Society
as one of the gutsiest performances in team history. The team will be back in
competition on April 7, carrying the College’s colors to a tournament to be
held at Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey.
