Last weekend, members of the Rutgers University Debate Team took time out of their winter break to compete at City University of New York. Debating at the tournament were Sean Leonard ’16, Pasha Temkin ’18, and Max Albert ’19. RUDU alumnus, George Alukal ’15, also came to support the team.

Leonard ’16 won the entire tournament by winning first place as Varsity Team with Eric Tannenbaum from TCNJ and getting first-place for Varsity Speaker! He continues to make Rutgers proud with his achievements.

Temkin ’18 and Albert ’19 also conquered the novice division by placing as the third best Novice Team! Individually, they were ranked 6th Novice Speaker and 7th Novice Speaker, respectively.

Congratulations to all of the debaters! Next weekend, the team will be going to Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.
