Consistently high up in finals in extemp....and apol....and impromptu...and duo....and basically everything. Plus, he's a pretty amazing LDer, having won regionals both years he has competed in LD, and taking third in speaks at this past regionals.
His IO is fantabulous. He won two qualifiers with it (if I remember correctly), as well as placing second at the NC Open.
His persuasive and informative are both quite excellent. And don't even get me started on debate speaks....his persuasive power in 2ARs and 2NRs is quite deadly.
He won all 3 qualifiers he attended in extemp, if I remember correctly...which is pretty incredible. As well as winning at least one tournament in apol and possibly impromptu as well. Plus, he has an incredibly clear speaking style in LD.
It seems like she is almost always winning apol and impromptu, as well as doing well in informative. And her speaking style in LD is very smooth and calm - it sounds as if she is delivering a prescripted platform.
Just took first in both extemp and LD speaks at regionals. He also won impromptu at one of the qualifiers. His speaking style is very engaging and clear.
^^^Seconded.Andrew Amedick and Lydia Eskelund
Their duo is Amazing. They won 3 of the 5 tournaments they went to, including Regionals and the NC Open both of which they won. They both have made it to Nationals in HI and Andrew also made it in Info. Andrew is only 13 and Lydia is 14 so they will be someone to watch out for. Andrew won Info at one of the qualifiers and Lydia won HI at the first tournament she competed with it.Elliot Paul
He is a great speaker, made it to Nats in TP at age 14. He also made it in Apol after breaking for the first time at the last qualifier. He may have also made it in some other events I'm not sure.
