Cohen once again compiled an undefeated, 4 win and 0 loss record by defeating debaters from Abington Heights, Dallas, Wallenpaupack, and Shikellamy High Schools.
There was no final in JV LD Debate and, consequently, Cohen was declared the JV LD Debate Champion.
As a result of his finish, Cohen built his JV record, against freshmen and sophomores, to an amazing 21 wins and 5 losses.
“This was another solid performance from Austin. It was a great way to wrap up his JV career,” commented EL Forensics Director Keith Brosious.
