Student Elizabeth ("Lizzie") Philips and Phil Santos, Communication Permalink
HSU students Elizabeth (“Lizzie”) Philips and Phil Santos advanced to the top 16 at the U.S. Universities Western Regional Debate Championships held March 24-26 at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma WA.
USUW as it is called brought over 60 debating pairs representing 20 schools from Arkansas to Hawaii, from UCLA in Southern California to the University of British Columbia in B.C. Canada. Lizzie and Phil advanced to the quarterfinal round (the top 16) where they lost a close debate about whether or not the EU should pursue protectionist economic policies with the UK post “Brexit.” The tournament is touted as a regional preview of the National Championships which the team will be attending next week.
