SMA 4 Denpasar is the high school with the best debate program in Indonesia without a doubt. The Bali school did not only secure all spots in the final of the 2012 ALSA UI E-Competition after two of its teams won their semifinals this morning. It defended the championship title even before the penultimate debate of the tournament. On top of that, the finalist debaters are totally different than last year's champions, showcasing the school's depth and regeneration.
#1 SMA Denpasar B (Alana Deborah, I Gede Bagus Gloria, Annyssa Rizki) defeated #4 SMA Tarakanita 2 from Jakarta while #2 SMA 4 Denpasar A (Carissa Tehputri, Mulyawati Moeliono, Ida Ayu Pradnya Paramita) knocked out #3 SMA 3 Semarang. The Bali domination may likely continue when the top speakers are announced after the final. ALSA UI E-Comp is the most prestigious school-based debating competition in Indonesia. No school has dominated the competition like this before.
