Dalton Parliamentary Debate (Parli) Team Advances to Semifinals
The Dalton Parliamentary Debate (Parli) Team attended the Ivy League Championship Tournament, hosted by Columbia University. All nine debaters from Dalton participated in the Varsity division, which comprised a competitive group of students from across the tri-state area. Team heads Davey Morse '18 and Grant Gordon '18 advanced to the Varsity semifinals, and Gordon was recognized as the 7th best speaker.
Columbia’s tournament was in its inaugural year, prompted by the co-founders of the New York Parliamentary Debate League (NYPDL), who include Morse, Gordon, Bryson Wiese '19, and the heads of Horace Mann’s team. Moreover, past Executive Director of the NYPDL and current freshman at Columbia Rodda John managed the tournament. Dalton's team is excited about Parli's expansion in New York through the NYPDL and is looking forward to its next tournament at Dalton in May.
