The Dukes and Bailey Cup is an annual award given to the LD debater at the NDCA Championship Tournament who has amassed the most NDCA qualifying points over the course of the season.  The past three winners are Jordan Lamothe (’09 and ’10), Steven Adler (’11), and Noah Star (’12).

The data below include results from Alta, Apple Valley, Blake, Bronx, Crestian, CPS, Dowling, Iowa Caucus, George Mason, Glenbrooks, Grapevine, Greenhill, Houston Memorial, Hendrick Hudson, Meadows, Princeton, Ridge, St Marks, U Texas, Valley, Voices, Wake Forest, and Yale.  Any tournament can count towards NDCA credit.  If you would like another tournament included in the scores, please contact me at palmer at tabroom dot com.

NDCA points are calculated by multiplying the winning percentage in prelims by the size of the field (with a cap at 100), with bonus multipliers for advancing in elimination rounds (2.3 for winning, 1.8 for finals, 1.6 for semis, 1.4 for quarters, 1.2 for octos, and 1.1 for clearing) and for geographic diversity (2 for 16+ states, 1.8 for 13-15, 1.6 for 9-12, 1.4 for 6-8, 1.2 for 3-5). Only a debater’s top five tournaments count towards NDCA points.

Also if you spot an error let me know; if your name or your school name was spelled differently at two tournaments or something, it’s possible you don’t have your full total credited.   The last column is number of tournaments I have records for, though your top 5 tournament scores are the only ones included in the totals.

You can track results tournament-by-tournament as I add them on the publicly viewable Google spreadsheet.
