Two Texas Tech Debate Teams Ranked in Top 10

Rob Snyder,

Two Texas Tech debate teams are now in the top ten.

Fifteen undergraduate students comprising the Texas Tech University Forensics Union took first place in overall sweepstakes at the William Jewell College season opener.

This is the second year in a row that Texas Tech Debate won the season opener.

Texas Tech has two teams in the top 10 for the country in recently released national rankings.

“We, unlike many other teams, only had three debate tournaments to date,” said Rob Layne, Texas Tech director of forensics. “Our placements would have been higher if we had made it to one more tournament before the rankings were released.”

The Texas Tech Forensics Union will next compete at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, where they will go up against teams from the Pacific Northwest.

“We have a lot of talent to work with this year,” said Layne. “We are working on improving the number of people we can take to tournaments to be more competitive as a squad. I am looking forward to seeing how well we do the rest of the season.”
