Sophia D. '19 Earns 2-4 Debate Record at Tournament of Champions
She becomes the second debater in Marlborough history to qualify for the tournament.
A public service of the University of Kentucky Intercollegiate Debate Program, the Tournament of Champions (TOC) serves as a competition of the nation's best speech and debate participants, striving to offer the highest quality judging, impartial officials, and friendly atmosphere. The 47th TOC took place at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY, on April 28 - 30.
Only 88 debaters in the entire nation qualified to the tournament, and only 27 of those were girls. Most competitors are seniors, as it is difficult to qualify as a Junior.
Sophia earned an excellent 2-4 record at the TOC, just three speaker points shy of cracking the Top Ten Speakers at the tournament. She becomes only the second debater in Marlborough history to qualify for the TOC (after Annie Gersh '16).
