William Jewell debaters David Dingess (sophomore, Aurora CO) and Andrew Potter (sophomore, Buhler KS) are the 2010 Missouri State Parliamentary Debate Champions. Jewell debaters have won the tournament three consecutive years and have gotten to the finals every year since 2004.

This year’s tournament was open to non-state schools as well as Missouri colleges and universities. Fifteen schools, including eight from Missouri, competed in the tournament, held February 19-20 at Webster University in St. Louis.

Dingess and Potter defeated teams from Carthage University, McKendree University and Truman State to win the championship. First-year Matt Reisener (Indianola IA) was named top Missouri speaker and 2nd overall speaker in the tournament. He and his debate partner, first-year Tyler White (Independence MO), were the undefeated top seed of the tournament in preliminary rounds and defeated Southwest Baptist University in the first elimination round before losing to Truman State in quarterfinals. Michael LaCombe (sophomore, South Sioux City NE) and Jimmy Stuart, (first-year, Sioux City IA) qualified for the elimination rounds.

“Jewell has established themselves as the squad to beat for the Missouri State Debate title,” said Director of Debate, Dr. Gina Lane. “This was our last tournament before Nationals in late March, and I am very proud of the momentum we have created.”

William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within the Kansas City metroplex of more than two million.
