Michigan Results: New Trier BW and GBN JL to face off

It was a fun and eventful weekend at Saline high school in Ann Arbor this past weekend.  We saw many creative costumes and even better debates.  The 7 round preliminary made for a unique twist on the tournament, with five of those debates coming on the Saturday of the tournament.  There were 145 teams competing by the start of debates on Friday, but only 32 would make it to the elimination debates on Monday.

The tournament concluded with two teams from the Chicago area agreeing to have finals at a date in the not too distant future, to allow both squads to get their buses started south.  GBN JL and New Trier BW both went 6-1 in prelims, but went undefeated in the outrounds leading up to the finals.  Both teams debated very impressively and earned well deserved trips to the final round.  The two other semifinalist teams were Westminster BH and MBA GJ.  The quarterfinalists included Niles West BG, New Trier KS(which closed out a bracket with BW), MBA CJ and MBA BH.

McDonogh’s Nishad Neelakandan was top speaker, after already finishing as second speaker at the Senior Round Robin.  BCC’s Nevan Edwards came in 2nd place, New Trier’s Connor Warshauer  was 3rd, McDonogh’s Ryan James was 4th and GBN’s Jonah Jacobs was 5th.

You can find the complete speaker award list below, as well as the teams earning TOC Bids at Michigan this past weekend.

Congratulations to all outround participants!
