Worlds Wrap Up!
To continue with the SWORDS trend over the last few years, we had some more record-breaking results at the World University Debating Championships with UOW 1 (Ben Hewitt and Orion Lepan-Taylor) breaking to the partial double octos in 25th position. Sadly being knocked out by Yale and the University of Queensland. UOW 2 (Lucy Cowen and Patrick Bell) finished only 4 points shy of our 1s on 14 points; which was also an incredible result. Special shout out to Ben Hewitt for topping the UOW speakers with an average score of just over 80 and sitting as the 37th best speaker.
We're so proud of all 5 of the UOW representatives and their amazing work - even if only one of them is staying with us for the coming year - however, we hope to see lots of new faces to fill their boots as we kick off 2019 at some Minis, O-Week and of course our opening of the house in Week 1.
