This past weekend, March Madness came to the WUDL. As students and volunteers alike checked their phones and sought updates on the weekend's NCAA tournament, students competed in their last tune-up before our district tournament on April 14th.
This tournament included several noteworthy happenings:
--DC International's top team, Almendarez and Lowenstein, took their first loss of the season in the Varsity Division.
--Benjamin Tasker's Maceiko and Beivens took 1st Place and 1st and 2nd Speaker in the Novice Division, a big turnaround for a school whose students had struggled to win rounds early in the season.
--KIPP College Prep made their season debut. Coach Reddy had 5 debaters this weekend and has another half-dozen more ready for our April tournament.
As usual, many thanks to the fabulous folks at CHEC for hosting us!
