In the early hours of Monday, April 14, three exhausted judges declared Prospect High School’s duo of Rohan Grover & Mayank Srivastava the winners of the Santa Clara University Philalethic Invitational. Grover & Srivastava successfully negated the resolution “The USFG should adopt the Finnish collaborative model of education,” defeating Bentley School’s Alexis & Shane Pracar on a 3-0 ballot. Both teams turned in dominating performances en route to the finals; the top-seeded Pracars beat the other three semifinalist teams during the preliminary rounds. Similarly, Grover & Srivastava dropped one ballot all tournament as they swept through eliminations to claim Prospect’s second consecutive SCU2 tournament.
Prospect High School is coached by Julie Herman and Hamda Khan. Bentley School is coached by Bruce Jordan.
