The last two weekends of the Tournament of Champions season were huge for Woodward Academy. They were victorious at both invitationals.
At the University of Georgia Bulldog Debates, the team of Rahim Shakoor and Meera Gorjala defeated Stratford Academy’s Andrew Jones and Hemanth Sanjeev on a 2-1 decision in Finals.
Alpharetta’s Reuben Lack and Anushka Panday were in the Semifinal round, where they became fully qualified to the Tournament of Champions.
Woodward’s other team in Nasir Nanjee and Karthik Srinivasan finished as quarterfinalists. To read more about teams in elimination rounds see the UGA Debate website.
At Vestavia Hill’s the team of Nasir Nanjee and Karthik Srinivasan won the tournament and defeated Westminster Schools’ Robel Worku and Colin Basco.
The highlight of this tournament was that only Georgia teams reached elimination rounds. Johns Creek had three teams reach elimination rounds (Poonam Dalwadi & Josh Foretich; Kelly Tieu & Micah Jones; Chetan Habbale & Edward Xiou).
Congratulations to all these teams for two great weekends of debate!
