Best Policy Team in Oregon 2015

Recommended Posts

 

Hey all, this is Thurston here. I was wondering who you think the best debaters have been this year in Oregon policy? I know we haven't been to many tournaments this year. But we're hoping to come more often next year, and it'd be fun to figure out who's been good and who will be good next year.

 

 

Best Kritikal Debater: Henry Lininger

Best Policy Debater: Max Groznik/Lukas Schwab 

Best Overall Debater: 

Best Senior: Max Groznik/Lukas Schwab

Best Underclassman: Jonathan Lee/Soren Little/Henry Lininger

Fastest Debater: Jonathan Lee

Most Fun to Watch: idk about you but I have more fun debating than watching

Best Aff: Chronopolitics duh

Most Improved Debater: Leo Saenger

Team to watch out for next year: Oak Hill ES/Clack L*/OES

 

 

Meh I'll do a serious one 

 

Best Kritikal Debater: Shawn Lee (LD is broke)

Best Policy Debater: Lukas Schwab

Best Overall Debater: Shawn/Lukas

Best Senior: Shawn/Lukas

Best Underclassman: Henry Lininger

Fastest Debater: Zac's pretty fast 

Most Fun to Watch: Anyone that does the exact opposite of what the judge wants

Best Aff: Seasteads are cool I guess 

Most Improved Debater: Probably someone from Oak Hill given their late season out round appearances.

Team to watch out for next year: South if they decide to start adapting to judges.

Hey that's not fair for you to say. Like I know I'm not very good, but that doesn't mean that you can make fun of me and my teammates for that.

I was just asking what your username meant.. 

OK, let's look at this logically.

If it was Andrew, Andrew would be able to tell you what it meant.

If it was Thurston, you come off as a jerk, and they will be able to tell you what it means anyway, cause they made the account.

 

Given that this test would produce no useful information, the conclusion is that you were not in fact "just asking."

Fucking no. No shoutout to Brian for stealing a joke from the Internet. That tropicality shit had been floating around the East Coast for a while and then someone posted it to Fuck Yeah Policy Debate. Oregon get your shit together.
