  • Saturday was another great day for the Timothy Edwards Debate Club! The team of Chiamaka Chidiadi, Prasheeta Mohanty and Aarav Pruthi became the first ever team from Timothy Edwards to be named Connecticut Debate League's Tournament Champions! The team won all three Preliminary Rounds before outpointing their opponents in the finals. Congratulations Team! Individually, Prasheeta and Aarav placed 7th and 8th respectively as top 10 debate speakers. In the NOVICE Division, two TEMS teams finished the tournament with perfect 3-0 records. In second place the team of Akshara Labhe, Sahasra Natti and Tanisha Lakshmann bested more than 50 other Novice teams. AND, with an equally impressive performance the team of Aarna Jaggi, Aarohi Mudakatte and  Harshitha Prasanna finished in 3rd place. A number of TEMS NOVICE debaters also were noted for their outstanding performances. Leading the way was Jayden Chen in 2nd place, followed by Akshara Labhe in 5th place and Aarna Jaggi in 10th place. Next up for TEMS Debaters is the OPEN Invitational on April 6th and the Connecticut Democracy Center's Great Debate on April 24th.
