Historical Accomplishments

The National Debate Tournament is the national championship which concludes each season. Before the NDT, a select group of voters chooses the top 16 teams in the nation to receive a first round bid, which grants automatic qualification to the NDT.  Cal has received the 1st first round bid, given to the most successful team in the nation during the regular season, three times.
