Plano West FH
This page is run by Matthew Feng and includes cases from Plano West FG (junior year, partner Hanna-Mae Greenfield) and Plano West FH (senior year, partner Caroline Hao). I debated for Plano West from 2013-15, so my cases are very old and on very old topics. I hope that this also helps to highlight how much the event has evolved in technical ability and style. You can contact me on Facebook or at [email protected] - thanks.
