Last weekend (February 4-6), the University of Alberta Debate Society sent five teams to compete at the Western Canadian Debating Championships (The McGoun Cup).
The team of Sharon Ohayon and Nick Fowler advanced to the semi-finals, and the team of Roman Kotovych and Kyle Kawanami advanced to the quarter-finals. UADS Vice President, Chris Jones, advanced to the quarter finals representing Athabasca University.
Sharon Ohayon won the Public Speaking Competition, and Roman Kotovych was the third place debater.
Nick Fowler also won the CUSID VP West election, and will be representing the entire western region next year.
Congratulations to everyone, and a good showing from all the participants.
