Tusculum Debate at the Tennessee Valley Invitational, 2018

Evan and Alex with debate coach Dr. Miller

The Andrew Johnson Debate Team at Tusculum competed in the Tennessee Valley Invitational at Pellissippi State Community College in Knoxville on Saturday, February 24th. This multi-state tournament was the debut event for competitive debate at Tusculum, and included over 40 students from across the region. Our team of Evan Altizer and Alex Rolison made a successful debut in the novice division, and received several compliments from competitors and coaches at established programs. The team was very competitive in the round-robin portion of the tournament. During the round robin the team made a strong showing against several other teams, including narrow losses to the teams which went on to win 1st and 2nd in the division.
