At the Price Waterhouse Oxford Invitational, junior Shannon Beets and senior Scott Mac Kay placed 10th overall out of 90 other teams from around the world. The ULV team was the top American team there.

Jason Sandford, director of debate, felt that the ULV debate team performed very well.

“Once again, La Verne proved it can succeed against the highest levels of competition, beating schools such as Cambridge, Glasgow, and Trinity College,” said Sandford.
