but as usual, this is pretty biased and missing a lot of great teams, including college prep JM, Damien MP, Head Royce, Bellarmine, Leucadia MY, Clovis North, Polytechnic, Nevada Union, etc. 

 

I usually try to stay away from this things because they usually only hurt feelings and become an abnormally absurd popularity contest, but a few omissions (as evidenced above) made my comment necessary

Yes, and it's only their second year in policy. Tambe and Wang did LD freshman year individually, and only teamed up sophomore year. They did meh and went to SDI summer camp. But junior year (this past season), they did incredibly well.

Lol they did not do LD, they have been in policy ever since high school, and they had 3 bid rounds their first year if that is "meh". Jerry was in a LD tournament once as joke and went to a bid round. They both did policy in 8th grade but not together.

I don't know who's correct tbh; all my info is based off my own research. They each did LD in freshman year and there are no online records of their policy results. So I have no idea either.

Well I asked Raam and Jerry about their debate experience before I made this post they sit next to me in lab.

Oh wow that's cool. I guess I was wrong them. What lab?

BRS. Bill Batterman, Will Repko, and Jordan's Sternberg are our lab leaders.

Damien MP, CPS, and Clovis deserve to be on there.  Literally no one else.

Aha Tambe and Wang :Bow

Also the one Bellarmine team that took third at State Champs. They ran Afro Pessimism. Compared to them, Bellarmine Pierry/Sudesh was a joke.

 

lmao pierry/sudesh are gods now #glowup
