Four HPU students competed at the event – partners Jordan Hahn, junior from Burnet, and Lucy Manning, sophomore from Fort Worth, and partners Bailey Myler, senior from Brownwood, and Lauren Piper, freshman from Early.

Hahn and Manning advanced to out-rounds on day two and defeated the University of North Texas in the final round to win the tournament. Awards were also given to the top eight speakers at the tournament. Manning placed 5th, Myler placed 4th and Hahn was the top speaker at the event.
