After a long weekend of competition in March 2021, ND Debate won the Western JV Championships and earned top speaker! Rosalind Goldman and Molly Urfalian won last night. Goldman also won top speaker and Urfalian won 4th speaker overall. Both of them earned partial scholarships for summer debate camp and worked hard to represent ND.
