VSU Debate Wins Big

VSU debate team attended the University of Oklahoma on November 2-6. We competed against 25 other schools, several of which were Div I research programs. I am happy to report the following:

VSU won the debate championship in the IPDA JV division defeating Whitmore University of Eastern Washington. Kelsey Townsend was the winning Blazer.
In addition, VSU’s Haley Vinson made it to the quarter finals in the same division.

In addition to our IPDA (one on one) debate, VSU also placed two teams in semi finals in team NPDA (two on two ). Haley Vinson and Amoo Musiteli, and Travis Edwards and Shanta Johnson both placed in varsity semi’s which was amazing for our squad.

Proud to be a blazer! Hannah Tabrizi was an excellent assistant debate coach.
