Following a season in which the Sterling College debate team was ranked in the top 25 in the nation, this fall the team has picked up right where they left off by winning each division of the second annual “Debates on a Plain” Tournament, held at Barton College. Amassing an overall record of 20-1, the team easily captured the overall team sweepstakes and was named the championship team in both the varsity and novice divisions. The “Debates on a Plain” Tournament was one of the largest tournaments in Kansas this fall, hosting more than twenty competing teams.
Another first for Sterling College happened last week – the first “Department of the Year” award. Sterling College Art & Design chair William Morse accepted the first "Department of the Year" award in a faculty reception last week. The new award is designed to recognize outstanding achievements in recruitment and retention along with improvements in an academic program. The award comes with a $1000 gift for the department.
Sterling College senior Derrick Sullivan has been named this weeks NAIA and the Victory Sports Network Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts in Sterling’s 24-3 upset win over #13 Bethel College this past Saturday.
