Yale Defeats American for Rutgers 2012 Title

Trophies laid out for the Final Round at the Rutgers tournament in Scott Hall 135 on Saturday. The knight's helmet was awarded to top speaker Robert Colonel from Yale, who also won the tournament.

This last weekend, Rutgers hosted its largest tournament in APDA history, the first unopposed on a major weekend and first twenty-pointer (the most points a tournament can be worth). The tournament broke to varsity octofinals and novice quarterfinals. This was also the first time in an APDA tournament in league history when a varsity tournament offered novice quarterfinals. Eighty-one teams and seventy-eight novices from thirty-two colleges and universities were in attendance.

Here are the results from the tournament:
