    Congrats to Arianna!

    I do have to say that this tournament was by far one of the most well run tournaments I have ever been to in my time in debate. With awful weather plaguing the New York area this tournament had to be condensed to one day as opposed to two. Nine rounds were completed in one day – 5 prelims and a break to partial doubles. The tournament only ended an hour later on Saturday than when it was two days. Mad props to the Newark Science team for running this so efficiently.

    • Benjamin Wallach

      Definitely and I do hope online ballots become the norm- this tournament (among others) showed how much more efficient they make a tournament.

    Nice try Yang. We all know you dropped in Quarters.
