More success for the Simpson College debate team: Jacy Gomez and Ethan Fredrick won the “Gorlock Gala” Public Forum Debate Championship this weekend at Webster University in St. Louis.
Gomez and Frederick were undefeated in the preliminary rounds. In the finals, they defeated a team from Boise State University on a 3-0 decision. Gomez was awarded sixth best speaker in the division.
Paul Safford and Alex Severn went 2-2 in the preliminary rounds, placing 9th out of 15.
“I continue to be impressed with how all four members of the team represent Simpson in each round with the highest level of decorum,” said Spencer Waugh, debate coach. “It is incredibly important to me that Simpson College be known for the highest level of respect, politeness and decorum during competition.”
