THE GEORGETOWN CINDERELLA STORY!
<div> <span><b>Congratulations at the Georgetown Tournament!!!</b> New York City’s top debaters traveled to the Georgetown Invitational over the weekend and faced the top teams from across the nation – California, Texas, Florida, Chicago and other states across the nation. Nevertheless, our Great Debaters had an amazing Cinderella story of overcoming above all obstacles. </span>Two NYCUDL teams advanced to elimination rounds. Shout outs to ACORN’s Tyler Anderson & Jonathon Diaz and Bronx Law’s Geordano Liriano and Charles Athanasopolous for their incredible showing!! Both teams had winning records, 4-2 and 5-1 against some of the top schools in the nation and advanced to elimination rounds. Bronx Law dropped in their round to the Carrollton School, a private school where students pay $26,000/year from Kindergarden to 12th grade! ACORN advanced on a 3-0 decision to double-octofinals against Pace Academy where students pay $22,000/year since Kindergarden! ACORN narrowly lost one round away from a Tournament of Championships bid. Incredible Cinderella story for both teams. Shout outs to ACORN Community (Lee, Jen, Ben, Shana) and LGJ and our UDL community especially Andrew and Rashad for judging and coaching! Incredible weekend! </div>
