Congratulations to the Boston University Debate Society! The BU team of Alex Taubes and Greg Meyer has just officially won Team of the Year (TOTY) honors by earning the most high-profile victories in the country this year. Alex Taubes will also finish as the nation’s top speaker. It was a little over 11 years ago that I helped resurrect a then-dead and forgotten team. A decade later, BU students have proven themselves the best in the nation! Great job, guys!
Here’s a release from the BUDS:
“At Amherst, Alison and Alex won the tournament, and Alex was top speaker! Evelyn and Maddie also broke to quarters, and Maddie was 3rd novice speaker! Moreover, with Amherst gone, and the APDA season over, Greg and Alex have won APDA’s Team of the Year (TOTY) Award, Alison and Alex have finished as fourth TOTY, and Alex has clinched APDA’s Speaker of the Year (SOTY) Award. Overall, BU will finish 3rd in the College of the Year standings, behind only Yale and Harvard.
