The Missouri Valley College Debate and Forensics team has returned from the Pi Kappa Delta National Tournament, the first of two national tournaments.  This tournament is one of the oldest and largest national tournaments in the country.

The team of Eva Agcaoili and Cuauhtemoc Olvera went 4-1 in preliminary rounds of Parliamentary Debate and advanced to elimination rounds.  In both quarterfinals and semifinals they won on 2-1 decisions, and advanced to the finals round where they lost an excellent debate to be named Pi Kappa Delta NPDA JV National Runners Up.

Sha Wilson also competed at the tournament and compiled a record of 3-2 in International Parliamentary Debate, adding to the teams point total.

In sweepstakes, MVC took home 13th overall competing against 63 other colleges and universities.  MVC was also named in the top 10% of small schools sweepstakes.  This is the first time in MVC Debate and Forensics history that the team has placed in a national sweepstakes award. 

MVC was also the highest placing school from Missouri at the national tournament.
