Valley Announces Varsity Round Robin Field

The students, coaches and parents of the WDM Valley debate team are pleased to announce the field for the first annual Valley Varsity Round Robin, which will be co-hosted by the Valley debate team and the West Des Moines Public Library.

The Varsity Round Robin will feature twelve of the top LD debaters in the country. The field was selected based on the results of the 2013 TOC. We aim to provide not just top-flight competition, but excellent judging, transparent tabulation, world-class hospitality, and overall the best round robin experience of the season.

The Varsity Round Robin will be run at the same time as the third annual Sophomore Throw-Down, on Friday, September 27, the day before the Mid-America Cup begins.
