Both speakers also received speaker awards, with Gabby placing 2nd and David placing 10th.

In the Regional tournament, the teams of Daniel Yoon and Hunter Seitz, and Bobby Ma and Susie Song made it to JV semifinals! All four speakers picked up awards, with Susie placing 2nd, Hunter placing 3rd, Bobby placing 4th and Daniel placing 5th.
