Debate team attends tournament at Yale

Seven members of the Harvard-Westlake debate team attended the Yale Invitational Tournament last weekend. All debaters competed in Lincoln-Douglas debate and were accompanied by their coach, Michael Beitz.

In preparation for the new school year, the novices who competed in the tournament, Katharine Hong ’10, Lauren Seo ’10, Jeffrey Sperling ’11, and Sade Tavangarian ’11 attended summer debate camps.

Debate captain Sean Nadel ’09, Tony Baker ’09, and Ben Bared ’09 competed at the varsity level.

“The Yale Debate Tournament was a great experience for our team. It’s wonderful to see more Harvard-Westlake kids get involved,” Nadel said.
