The GMU Forensics Team starts the 2024 tournament season with success!

 

Two weeks ago, The GMU Forensics Team traveled to Bradley University for their first national-level tournament of the semester. This tournament is called "Hell Froze Over XXV Swing" and it happened MLK Day weekend (1/13-1/14) at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. It was also -15 degrees with a -39-degree windchill, but the team made it through the cold weather and the tournament successfully! See below for the results. Congratulations to the Forensics Team and everyone who participated!
