Best Policy Team in Oregon 2015

Recommended Posts

How is this still a thing? 
Also y'all are just sleeping on some good debaters and it's unfortunate.
 

Best squad/school: Wiwo's coming in clutch with that lincoln squad
Best aff team: LO AJ has had one bid tournament together. They didn't lose an aff round. It was arguably the most competitive bid tournament of the year. How is this a question?
Best 1a: Y'all are just straight sleeping on Marcus' 1AR's; sure their Aff might be ridiculous and probably doesn't do anything but he can still spin some offense pretty hard
Best 2a: Soren maybe, but I think not losing an Aff round AND outspeaking Soren at berk is pretty indicative of Laura being someone at least mentioning.
Best 2n: lol have you seen marcus go for something other than psycho? they read some poetry once and that just didn't work out; y'all are sleeping on Madeline without a doubt. I know most of you aren't as clear as she is and weren't nearly as good as she is when you were sophomores.
Best kritik debater: Thurston. Wasn't that a meme when this was funny?
Best straight-up policy debater: AHEM CLARA AND MADELINE
Best Novices: Oak Hill CH for sure; when was the last time your novices went deep at Gonzaga? (I'm not sure who you is in this sentence but just generally hoping that the sentiment applies)
Most untopical aff: "So far, Lake-O's Baudrillard (though that may change at state  ;) )" go for framework! The aff hasn't lost to T yet 
Most helpful person: Hello, probably one of your coaches who's paid to dedicate time and energy to help you out
Most hardworking debater: Y'all I'm in the LO dropbox and it's annoying how much work Laura gets done. I regularly have to just turn off syncing so I can get rid of the silly box that pops up
Most improved team: "Probably Clara and Madeline" lol @ probably
Next Year's Top Team: Henry and Leo when they run out of money and debate in state again

While slightly nepotistic, can I just throw out there the prediction that my fantastic cousin Julia Lininger will come to dominate the circuit by the end of next year. Second, I know Leo and I haven't really debated in Oregon much this year, but we want to more next year, so which were the best tournaments in your guys' opinions that you would suggest going to? Looking forward to debating everyone again!
