The Dominican College Debate Team participated in the season-opening intercollegiate debate tournament on November 9 at SUNY-Rockland.
Graduate student Christopher Bronson teamed up with newcomer Alma Godinez to put in a spirited performance that earned them a fifth-place finish in a very competitive Varsity Division. In the Junior Varsity Division, the rookie team of Elexis Harris and Edward O’Neill earned a fifth-place finish. Katherine Flores, another rookie team member, joined forces with a debater from SUNY-Rockland, and while the hybrid school team did not place, their effort was commendable.
The Debate Team will be back in action on Sunday, November 23, as it hosts the next tournament of the season in Casey Hall. Spectators are welcome as the Chargers defend their home field.
