Success for The Phil at the Cambridge IV…

On the 14th and 15th of November, Cambridge University held its intervarsity tournament. Two Phil teams attended: Kiera Healy (Registrar) and Ruth Faller (ex-President), along with Brian O’Beirne (ex-Registrar) and Jonathan Wyse (Debates Convener).

In a fantastic performance for the society, both teams broke to the knock-out stages of the competition, with Kiera and Ruth being named as the fifth best team on the tab. Brian and Jonathan made it through to the semi-finals, while Kiera and Ruth progressed to to the final, where they debated the composition of the UN Security Council with teams from Oxford and MIT.

We would like to congratulate both teams on a fantastic achievement, and wish them the best of luck for the upcoming World Universities Debating Championship!
