For the first time in team history, the Lafayette Forensics Society competed in the International Forensics Association’s championship tournament! While the host of the tournament changes each year, Lafayette was lucky enough to attend while the tournament was hosted in Japan. Director of Forensics, Scott Placke accompanied Assistant Director John Boyer (and his wife!) and three of our seniors, Josh Hale, Ben Herman, and Shirley Liu to the tournament.
I know what you really want to see are all the awesome pictures we took on our trip, but in between sightseeing days, we DID in fact compete at a tournament! Here are the results:
Ben Herman – 4th place EXT, Bronze IPDA
Shirley Liu – 4th place PER, 5th place CA
And HERE are the pictures! Nationals and IOA updates to come soon!
