Entering as the top qualifier in the Harvard University debate tournament, Jake Sonnenberg ’11 placed second in the final round Feb. 11.

Needing two out of four wins to compete in the elimination rounds, Sonnenberg won all six preliminary rounds.

Along with his teammate Ben Sprung-Keyser ’11, Sonnenberg also qualified for the most prestigious tournament in the national circuit, the Tournament of Champions. Exceeding the necessary requirements of two “bids,” Sonnenberg holds four bids to the TOC. The TOC will be held the first week of May.
