Congratulations to Rutgers-Newark’s Nicole Nave and Devane Murphy for winning the 2017 National Debate Tournament at Kansas University. In finals, Rutgers defeated Georgetown’s Ezra Louvis and Natalie Knez on a 4-1 decision (Ard, Atchison, Morgan, Whitley, Whitmore*). Congratulations to Devane for also being top speaker.
This is only the second time in history that a team has “united the crowns” by winning both CEDA and the NDT.
