• Debate Season A Win

    Posted by Lorraine Brooks at 3/17/2017

    At yesterday’s championship debate tournament, the top team and judges from each of 14 league schools competed in the league’s “post-season.” Emily DiMaulo-Milk and Jeein Youn were the only team to go undefeated in the main portion of the tournament. They then participated in a nerve-racking showcase final round in front of all of the participating debaters, judges and coaches in attendance. Although they lost a split decision to the team from Bergen Academy, we are incredibly proud of their second place finish at this competitive event. Jasmine Song was named top judge, continuing River Dell’s tradition of outstanding judges.

    Emily finished the season as the top speaker in the league – accruing more points throughout the season than any of the other 174 competitors. Lauren Chen and Jasmine Song were among the most awarded judges in the league, as well.

    Our seniors this years are truly outstanding debaters, judges and people. Congratulations to Emily, Jeein, Lauren, Jasmine, Joe Choi, Jake Campbell, Kevin Lee and AJ Perlowin for completing fantastic high school debate careers!
