Cheered on by family and friends, the Dominican College Debating Team returned to action on November 23, hosting an intercollegiate debate tournament in Casey Hall.
Veteran members Christopher Bronson and Nathaniel McAuliffe led the team, earning a fourth-place finish in a very competitive Varsity Division. Mr. Bronson also earned an individual fourth-place speaking award. In the Junior Varsity Division, the teams of Alma Godinez and Edward O’Neill; Natalie Arias and Katherine Flores; and Elexis Harris and Nevan Obach continued to gain experience and represent Dominican College with honor and pride. Jonathan Cho, another new team member, joined forces with a debater from SUNY-Rockland, and while the hybrid school team did not place, Jonathan was recognized for his performance in his first-ever intercollegiate debate. The Debate Team will be on the road for its next tournament, traveling to the City on February 8 to compete at Yeshiva University.
