Georgia Debate Union wins University of Miami tournament

Additionally, the team of Alyssa Hoover (Alpharetta, Georgia) and Tripp Haskins (College Park, Georgia) finished tied for 5th place at the tournament.  

The University of Miami Hurricane debates featured schools from around the country, including teams from Emory University, Boston College, the United States Naval Academy, and the University of Michigan.  The Bulldogs' victory at Miami represents the second tournament won by the Georgia Debate Union in 2017-18, following a victory at the Vanderbilt University tournament this past October. 

Congratulations to our students and the excellent debate program in the department of communication studies. Thanks as always to head debate coach Hays Watson for keeping us informed.
