On the British Parliamentary side of Morehouse Debate, growth continues as well. Two teams competed at the Yale Intervarsity and performed historically well, gathering more team points and speaker points than at any time in the team's history. Next up is a trip to the north to visit our friends in Vermont for their annual Huber Debates, where we hope to continue the upward trend.
Finally, the team has enjoyed various exhibition opportunities throughout the semester. The Howard Debate, which is always a treat, went fantastically well and received excellent feedback. More recently, the team performed at the request of the college's First Lady, Dr. Carol Espy-Wilson, at the Davidson House. Also, two members of the team represented Morehouse in DC at the Mvubu Debates sponsored by the Civis Institute, where they went undefeated in preliminary rounds, were ranked as the 2nd seed at the tournament, and received an amazing opportunity to travel to South Africa next January to continue their exploration of the topic.
All in all, the season has been a rousing success so far, and we hope to keep this trend alive going forward. Don't forget to check back here for more updates, and follow us @MorehouseDebate to the right!
