Last week, we reported that UGA sent two students to the 2014 Lafayette Debates hosted by George Washington University and the French government in Washington, D.C. How'd they do? Pretty well, of course:
The team of Amy Feinberg and Eilidh Geddes had a wondefully successful tournament at the recent Lafayette Debates held at George Washington University and sponsored by the French Embassy. The team defeated teams from Georgetown, Ecole de Guerre, and the University of Houston (featuring a former NDT champion) in the preliminary rounds and defeated the U.S. Military Academy in the octofinal round. They ultimately lost a close debate to the University of Houston in the quarterfinals, barely missing out on a all-expenses-paid trip to France.
In addition to their team success, Amy Feinberg was named the 8th speaker at the tournament. The Lafayette Debates featured teams from all across the nation and the world. The list of participants can be found here: http://www.lafayettedebates.com/teams.htm
We are proud of their accomplishment and look forward to returning to DC next year. Go Dawgs!
Thanks to the Georgia Debate Union for keeping us updated. Great job representing UGA, Amy and Eilidh.
