MORE MIDWEST SUCCESS
Debating in Round Two | Snider & Morgan with Awards
The LDU continued its Midwestern strategy this last weekend.
With both national tournaments to be held in Kansas City this year, Vermont
has visited the Midwest many times. This weekend Sarah Snider & Helen
Morgan entered the varsity division at the Southern Illinois University Saluki
tournament, one of the oldest and most traditional tournaments in that region.
After a 4-2 preliminary record, Sarah and Helen lost a close 2-1 decision
to Illinois State University to finish FIFTH in the tournament. In speaker
awards, however, UVM was the most dominant team and school. He;len Morgan
was rated the #1 debater in the varsity division and Sarah Snider was rated
the #5 debater in the varsity division. After two tournaments in the East,
Helen and Sarah will return to the Midwest for the Heart of America tournament
at the University of Kansas.
