Six weeks after winning the first place trophy in the first of five DC Urban Debate League tournaments this year, the Sidwell Friends Middle School Debate Team again won the first place trophy in the second tournament, held on December 8 in Bowie, Maryland.

In the individual speaker point category, Sidwell Friends won 12 of the top 20 slots, including numbers two, three, four, seven, eight, nine and ten. Congratulations again to Coach Burt Nadler and the entire Debate Team!
