In the Novice Division, Nathaniel Cheney and Spencer Johnson, both first year debaters, had a 3-2 win loss record with 21 speaker points against 86 teams. Cheney stated, “We walked in doing very well, we may have lost two rounds, but we still had a 3/2 win loss record which is a winning record against 86 teams. We did our best.”
