    it seems strange that debaters qualified to the toc would be entered in a jv division. i have no idea what the precedent is on this for woodward and obviously they weren’t breaking any rules but it seems odd to me. but congrats to brentwood for supporting such a great tournament

    • This tournament actually only had a sophomore field. I guess they just decided to call in JV on the nsd post

      • It’s not based on skill or on grade level. It’s years of LD/policy debate experience. In the past, the JV pool has included 2nd-year seniors and 9th graders with middle school experience.
        From JoT:
        “The purpose of our tournament is to provide First- and Second-Year Competitors with a national event. …

        What if my debater is an 11th grader but started debating as a sophomore?
        They are eligible to debate in the Second Year National Championships. …

        What if my debater attended high school tournaments as a middle school student? Does this impact eligibility for your tournament?
        Yes. Participation in high school debate tournaments limits eligibility no matter the age of the student at the time of participation.”

  • Congratulations to Linnea on finals- she’s earned this through her hard work and dedication every day at practice! Also, congrats to Achal and Brian on quarterfinals and octafinals, respectively. You all did great this weekend and the future is bright for Lex.
