KO’s advanced team was composed of Braden Flowers ‘21, Chaitanya Karanam ‘21, and Braeden Rose ‘21, as well as junior Teddy Schwartz ‘22. On the novice team were sophomores Frank Pu ‘23, Manu Narasimhan ‘23, and Jaedan Curcio ‘23, as well as freshman Bassil Chughtai ‘24. For the seniors, this would be their final debate for KO.
