LRCH's Williams and Woods Earn 6th Bid—Place 2nd at The Glenbrooks!

December 2, 2015—Another record breaking weekend for LRCH's dynamic debating duo, DJ Williams and Payton Woods! They attended the 2015 Glenbrooks in Northbrook, IL, where they  won their 6th bid to the Tournament of Champions in a field of 196 teams. Williams and Woods finished 2nd overall, losing on a close 2-1 decision to our rivals, The Blake School (MN). Woods was 2nd Speaker in a field of 392 speakers, and Williams was 10th Speaker! They earned their 6th Bid to the TOC at the Octafinals Level (top 16 teams), defeating The Meadows (NV) on a 3-0 decision. They remain the only team in the country with six bids and are still ranked #1 in the nation in both the Coaches' Poll and Baker Points.
 
Our Junior Varsity team also showed out at The Glenbrooks--Jessica Morgan and Connor Bierbaum advanced to Octafinals in the JV division, and Juliette Jung was named 5th Speaker! Novices Chloe Cunningham and Andrew Marecki advanced to Octafinals with a 5-1 record and Chloe earned 8th Speaker!

 
Their next stop in the bid race will take them to Minneapolis, MN over Christmas break, as well as The Southern Bell Forum in Nashville, TN, where they will be filmed for a debate documentary!
