Both teams displayed impressive oral advocacy skills during the competition.
The teams would like to personally thank Professor John Korzen and Professor Steve Garland for lending their time and wisdom to the teams. Their dedication to the teams was expremely appreciated and help each team enter the competition fully prepared.
