The Department of English and Philosophy Ethics and Debate Club competed in the 2019 North East Regional Ethics Bowl at Salisbury University in Maryland. Two USMA teams competed, making it to the quarterfinals before they had to face off against each other. Eventually, Team A made it to the semi-finals and put up an excellent debate against the University of Rochester. They did lose the round, but by being one of the final four teams remaining, they qualified for the National Competition in the Spring.
The two teams:
CDT Elijah Brown '21 (CIC)
West Point Team A - CDT Manley James '21, CDT AnnMarie Moolenar '21, CDT Trevor Powers '21, CDT Viviana Gonzalez '20, CDT Scott Nieboer '20
West Point Team B - CDT Trenton Bond '23, CDT Patrick Elter '23, CDT Averi Fetrow '22, CDT Nathan Frederickson '21
