The following students participated in the elimination rounds:

Alisha Samani, Semifinalist out of 50 Lincoln Douglas competitors

Marina Leventis & Aleena Jamal, Semifinalist out of 72 Public Forum team competitors

Alina Shivji & Miranda Nutt, 1st place in the Public Forum division; Miranda was also the 2nd place speaker in the division. Their finish fully qualifies them for the Tournament of Champions tournament in Kentucky in late April.
