THE THOMASIAN Debaters Council (TDC) placed eighth out of 104 teams in the 11th All-Asians Inter-varsity debate tournament last May at the Assumption University in Bangkok, Thailand.

In the individual category, Faculty of Civil Law freshman John Reily Baluyot and Philosophy sophomore Tracy Ann Llanera, who were individually recognized as the Tournament’s best speakers, placed 12th and 14th.

TDC adviser Law professor Arlene Maneja said she is optimistic about the Council’s performance in competitions.

“The group is promising,” said Maneja, the 2002 Bar topnotcher. “I am happy that individual people have been getting awards aside from their recognition as a group.”

Maneja added TDC will restructure to improve the group’s chances in future competitions.

Debaters from Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU), De La Salle University, Xavier University, and University of the Philippines Diliman and Manila also participated in the tournament. AdMU was the champion. Lady Camille L. de Guia
