Both St. Olaf EG and FT broke to semi-finals! The stage was set for a potential St. Olaf close-out.
Kevin and I were Gov while Bayley and Raffi ended up getting Opp. Strangely though, both rounds went almost the same way. Both sides decided to not run a plan and instead do a value debate and simply do a compare and contrast on how health-care costs affect the national debt. Basically, whether or not debt really affects people on an individual level, and how bad are health care costs in the US right now.
We both hit some strong teams that are sure to continue to be contenders throughout the entire debate season. Having such close rounds on both ends provided some serious catharsis after what was a very long wait on hearing who broke. Needless to say, we were very excited.
