National champs: K-State debate team takes title

By Julie Fosberg

Justin Green, instructor of communication studies, coached two debaters who won the national championship at the 2011 Cross-Examination Debate Association's national tournament. The event was March 18-22 at Binghamton University, State University of New York, Binghamton, N.Y.

Green's team claimed K-State's third national debate championship since 1991.

"Winning the national championship is something we thought about and prepared and practiced hard for, but it still comes as an absolute surprise," Green said. "What makes this one so special is that it comes 20 years to the day K-State won its first national championship at this same tournament in 1991."

Assistant directors of the K-State debate team are Sarah Snider and Cade Hamilton, both instructors of communication studies.
