LOOK OUT DEBATE WORLD, HERE WE COME!

The University of Vermont's Lawrence Debate Union is preparing for another semester of competition. The above photo was at the Monday night squad meeting, although Aby Trebilcock & Charlie Hoag were at the SGA meeting with a funding request and other debaters were either in class or ill. A nice group. With 14 teams preparing to travel and compete, this is one of the biggest LDU squads in recent years.
