Emory pair become first all-female team to win National Debate Tournament
Emory senior Aimi Hamraie of Colleyville, Texas, and junior Julie Hoehn of Alpharetta, Ga., are the first all-female team in the 61-year history of the National Debate Tournament to win the title. The top 72 college teams in the country gathered in Dallas, Texas, March 28–April 2 to determine the national champion.
More than 1,500 teams competed this year.
“It’s a huge accomplishment,” said Edward Lee, who serves as Hamraie and Hoehn’s primary coach. “You just can’t overestimate how important this is for students who are debaters. It’s the one tournament of the year everyone aims for.”
And how are the winners? “It hasn’t sunk in yet,” said Hamraie.
