Interestingly the debate’s chair who got rolled lost her Austral’s semi on the neg of that same topic, barker was on neg as well.Reports from Senior A are Aloys won unanimously in a fairly clear debate and Grammar won in a very close debate, with the chair getting rolled.
Looking at this age group in previous years, it looks like Grammar beat Aloys in year 10 and year 9 respectively.So next Friday night we see the 2 best teams in NSW debating (including CHS imo) face off for the ISDA title, like they did in 2021.
Acc. To another poster, Grammar beat Barker (who was missing their state speaker) in a close one whilst Aloys beat the impressive Joeys team in a unanimous and clear decision.
The College St faithful will no doubt be out in force but I think something special is brewing just North of the bridge.
This Grammar team is nowhere near as strong as previous years whilst the Aloys team is freakishly good. It is because of this and the fact that no team has come near them all year, that my call for the ISDA title is St Aloysius.
Unsure, the strength of junior teams always seems to be changing. All the best for them in the Grands against a surprising Grammar opponent that beat MLC. This cohort of MLC speakers won last year and many claimed that there were very strong speakers in that team.Anybody know anything about the year 9 Shore team?
