Top Novices In The Country

Recommended Posts

Most people don't care but what do you guys think?

 

I'd say McClellan from Niles west, Estrada from SFA, Bannister from Highland Park (HP BM beat SFA ES at berkeley, i heard), Wang from Blake.... Agree? Disagree? Am i missing anyone...

That's more or less accurate with the exception of Estrada, mainly because I do not know him. I also think New Trier and Pace have pretty good novices.

Lol. Same with Pace Novice A Team. They have like 4 different versions. Seems to be a common trend among good novice teams these days.

SFA beat HP in prelims on a bad decision. And yeah New Trier and Pace have good teams, forgot. I think all good novice teams are really good at the K this year. the HP team runs a K aff that they're undefeated on. I guess the exception is Blake A and Niles West, straight policy.

i remember watching northern AS vs. one of Pace novice teams. Pace was completely kritikal on neg, but AS took the victory with their policy advocacy

from what I've heard, the HP team lost on role of the ballot, even though the 2N explicitly said they meet the role of the ballot because the Furness evidence included the voices of the oppressed. Also none of the process focus stuff applied because the CP was to gain political process. Finally, the aff never talked about how they actually solve. The 2A literally never said how the plan solves structural violence

 

Bad decision?

That's just not true though, and there was a legitimate judge in the back.

I'd say that the most successful novice teams this year had a relatively good understanding of the common kritikal philosophies. whether or not they were actually kritikal, its true that there was an influx of kritikal teams in the novice division this year so a significant amount of novice success was the ability to overcome Nietzsche, cap, security, Heidegger, etc..

 

That's just not true though.

Nick Nabors from C.E. Byrd. Cleared at two TOC qualifying tournaments in varsity as a freshman. He will be seriously good in the near future.
