Debate Team takes Nationals again

The Liberty University Debate Team celebrated the end of a championship year Thursday after claiming the American Debate Association’s national title for the fourth year running.

Until two years ago, the team was led by Brett O’Donnell, who this year resigned to work as a communications specialist for Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign.

This year, the school took the top score in the American Debate Association’s final rankings while also earning a second-place finish behind Binghamton University among rankings calculated by two other organizations, the National Debate Tournament and the Cross Examinations Debate Association.

The team this year debated on the topic of Middle East policy, and whether the United States should engage those countries, said senior captain Garrett Halydier.
