of District 3!); and advanced to Double Octos at the NDT. Brian also
racked up numerous speaker awards this year: 4th at CEDA, 16th at the NDT,
19th at Wake, 2nd at the D3 Qualifier, and 5th at Cal. Kudos to Brian and
the whole UT-D crew on an outstanding year!

5-3 and missed on points. She won the Liberty tournament and was in
Semifinals of West Georgia. Along the way she was top speaker at Libersty,
17th at CEDA, and 20th at West Georgia. In addition, she was part of a
squad that had another great showing at the NDT! Congrats to Lauren and the
Dylan Quigley (Kansas)
Dylan cleared at Kentucky and Northwestern, was in elimination rounds at
both halves of the Texas Two Step, and was 5-3 at Harvard. He also
qualified for the NDT, where he competed and also assisted his teammates in
an incredible run. Congrats to Dylan and the Jayhawks!

Kentucky, and the NDT. He was in Quarterfinals at Wake Forest, Semifinals
at West Georgia, and also won the UCO tournament! In addition, Nick was 7th
