DePauw Debate

Milligan and Trier Are 2019 Indiana State Debate Finalists!

First year debaters Brenna Milligan and Alayna Trier were named the 2nd Place Team in the state after their impressive showing at the Indiana State Debate Tournament this past weekend in Indianapolis.  They were one of four teams to advance to elimination rounds, and they handily won their semi-final round on a 3-0 decision before dropping a close round to tournament champion Ball State.  The resolution for the final round was: "Today, this house is proud to be from America."  DePauw affirmed the resolution.  Milligan further distinguished herself by being named the 4th Place Speaker of the tournament.  In addition, DePauw brought home the 3rd Place Sweepstakes Award because of the outstanding performance of all the DePauw teams.
