Colorado best of

Recommended Posts

1. Best Varsity Team- I don't want to pick one.

2. Best Novice team- I haven't hit many novices, but probably one of the sets of Kent girls.

3. Most Underrated debater: Matthew Symonds from GW

4. Best Squad- Creek, probably.

5. Best Affirmative Team- None really stick out, I'll probably go with Tyler and Andrew.

6. Best 1A- Will Miller

7. Best 2A- Nameir Abbas

8. Best Negative Team- Creek GO

9. Best 1N- I really don't know.

10. Best 2N- Mayu Takeda

11. Prettiest Speaker- Lisa Li is a fox. But in terms of speaking style, probably Andrew Hilger or Patrick O'Brien on his K tangents.

12. Fastest Debater- Mayu Takeda or Cameron Merrick

13. Most likely to do well next year- Kent KM, Littleton MJ, GW TW

14. Person most likely to graduate and judge- Ian Dalton

15. Best Judge- tough call...I'll go with Logan Martin and both of the Bernhardts

16. Coach of the year- Greg Sobetski! But picking one isn't really fair, all the coaches are great and put so much energy into this event.

17. Best K debater- Patrick O'Brien

18. Best Counterplan debater- Toby Jacob (best at cutting crazy/awesome CPs)

19. Best T debater – I don't know, we haven't been in many intense T debates

20. Best partnership: Mayu and Lisa, or Patrick and Andy.

21. Most Untopical case: CTL! just kidding, it's actually very topical. Certainly more so than Gas Tax.

22. Best negative position: Cap K.

23. Funniest off case position you saw: people haven't done crazy enough stuff against us. I guess Patrick's security K in finals of Creek-East.

24. Favorite tourney: Creek-East (Turkey)

25. Least favorite tourney: GW Cherry Tree Chop

26. Scariest Debater: Mayu Takeda (love you)

27. Funniest Debater/Coach/Judge: I can't really pick one.

28. Senior you will miss most: I'll miss everyone in debate, not just the seniors

1. Best Varsity Team- Kent DS
This made me laugh. Mr. Spafford, if you're reading this, then Happy Birthday!

 

Thanks for the shout-out, Taylor. It was a privilege to coach teams that had to compete against such a tough field. But I'm getting ahead of myself -- we've still got NFL Quals...

1. Best Varsity Team – CREEK Takeda/ ? My memory escapes me on their names...All I know is we (Erin and I) hit them in sems at Cheyenne East...and it was the single-most solid ass-whooping we have ever received. And I loved every minute lol

17. Best K debater- Mary. and College Prep girls who read the securidization narrative at Berkeley in quarters that I still obsess about. "I am a mole, and I try to escape the enemy... my eyes are open but I am not awake...(or something like that)" awesome.

Debater I would have liked to try debating with - Nick Lind, Nameir, Tay

Favorite debate quote - "What is a tree made out of?"

Wow, that was a lovely neg rep from someone who's mature enough to use the term "f***stick". So Ian, since there seems to be some resentment, maybe you could move the posts relevant to Colorado to a new thread if it's not really time consuming? Thanks :)

It was! I actually thought the affirmative won the round but either way it was reallllly close. Best K round I got to see. Even though I heard the finals round was even better on the K.
