DePauw Debate

Erin Mann Awarded 3rd Place Speaker at Ball State Tournament!

DePauw debater Erin Mann set the pace at her inaugural collegiate debate tournament at Ball State University.  Mann paired with Sarah Lazzro of California State University-Fullerton to form "Team Tan" in this innovative parliamentary debate format.  Students were paired with debaters from other universities for the competition.

Mann's "Team Tan" took 5th Place at the tournament, and she further distinguished herself by capturing the 3rd Place Speaker Award.  This was Mann's first collegiate debate tournament which made the showing all the more impressive.  Next up: The Debate Team will compete at the Indiana State Tournament in February.
