Friars Compete in Virtual Debate Scrimmage

On Monday, December 14, 2020, John Baran '21, Brad Corsi '21, Ben Cottone '24, and Evan McFadden '24 participated in a virtual debate scrimmage with The Haverford School debate team.

Baran and Corsi faced two opponents, as did Cottone and McFadden. The event was a Public Forum Debate and the topic was "No First Use Policy" for Nuclear Weapons.

Cottone and McFadden did not win their round, but performed well and received positive feedback from The Haverford School judge.

Baran and Corsi won their match by the slightest of margins. They did a great job of controlling the narrative of the debate and spinning it towards their side of the argument.
