VSU Debate Team Achieves a New Standard of Undebatable Excellence

VSU LogoThe VSU Debate team blazed into three recent tournaments each with marked success. On September 25-27, VSU set fire in the University of North Georgia in Gainesville with team and speaker awards. The novice NPDA team of Corey Howard and Carnell Tate placed first overall, and did not drop a single debate. The varsity teams of Hannah Tabrizi and Darian Hector, and Chesley McNeil and Mercy Dahn were both semi-finalists, while Lexi Outlaw and Ashilee Thomas were quarter finalists.

In the IPDA division, Corey Howard won again, not dropping a single ballot, and for the weekend, he went 15-0; a feat never accomplished by a blazer in Eaves’ 23 year tenure. Meanwhile, Varsity IPDA debaters sizzled their way into a lockout, thus grabbing both first and second place overall. Those debaters were Chesley McNeil and Mercy Dahn. Also, placing in IPDA team awards were Ashilee Thomas. For speaker awards, VSU accolades were plentiful. In NPDA debate, Mercy Dahn placed fourth, Chesley McNeil was fifth, Hannah Tabrizi was seventh place, and in novice NPDA, Saul Crumpton was seventh overall, in his first ever debate.

More recently, VSU debate brought more heat into Florida for the TCC/FSU Capital Swing on October 2. The NPDA team of Corey Howard and Kelsey Townsend were semi-finalists. The Florida team was supervised and coached by Keven Rudrow, team assistant coach. While in Texas at the same time, the varsity squads, supervised by Dr. Eaves, and team head coach, torched their competition. The NPDA team of Mercy Dahn and Chelsey McNeil placed fifth overall against Division I giants Texas A & M, University of Oklahoma, and Texas Christian University. Ashilee Thomas ignited the competitors by placing tenth overall in a field of 34 debaters.The VSU team will host two events later this month. These are free and open to the public. The high school invitational will be Saturday, October 10 in Nevins Hall, while the college meet will take place on October 23,24 in Bailey Science Hall.
