Congratulations to all of the teams that participated in the Sweet 16 round. Advancing to this round of the competition is an incredible achievement, accomplished only by the most elite debaters.

As has been previously announced, on the advice of the CDC, we have reluctantly decided to cancel this year's IPPF Finals, planned for April 25, 2020. Please know that we did not reach this decision lightly. We were ultimately guided by our responsibility to help ensure the safety and well-being of our students, coaches and supporters.

Please note that an IPPF executive committee is currently considering options for the remainder of the contest. Of course, we are committed to recognizing the contributions and outstanding achievements of our Elite 8 teams.
