Amit Dodani and debate partner Amy Philip placed third in the California State University Fullerton college invitational tournament, competing in the varsity division of Public Forum.

“The Fullerton Tournament was definitely one to remember,” the junior said. “It was Amy’s and my first tournament of the year, so coming in we knew it would be tough competition. But prepping for hours and hours before all ended up being worth it when we got third out of fifty.”

He added that even more satisfying  was seeing team members from Chaminade Speech & Debate Society in the audience for their semifinal round.

“It meant the world to us to have that kind of support,” he said of the Oct. 19 victory.
