Adam Johnson, Round Robin Director at Montgomery Bell Academy, has released the pool for the 2012 iteration. In 2010, they named the tournament to honor the memory of long time Battle Ground Academy (TN) coach Sandra W. Davis. Sandra passed away in the Summer of 2009 and they aspire to hold a tournament that lives up to the lofty standards Sandra set for herself.
Here is the field:
Tom Cameron – Loyola Blakefield High School
Farhan Damani – Greenhill School
Stephanie Franklin – Walt Whitman High School
John Heizelman – Strake Jesuit
Jim Huang – New Orleans Jesuit
Geoffrey Kristof – Scarsdale High School
Drew McCormick – Strake Jesuit
Nikhil Nag – Mountain View High School
Bob Overing – Loyola High School
Jacob Pritt – New Orleans Jesuit
Noah Star – Lexington High School
Daniel Tartakovsky – Palos Verdes Peninsula High School
The tournament will feature eleven rounds of competition with each debater competing against the entire field. The top two competitors, determined by ballot count, will advance to an exhibition round. The champion, however, will be determined by ballot count through the eleven rounds.
Best of luck to all competitors.
