NSDC 2012: Bali Break First With Clean Sheet Again

Last year Bali, represented by students from the award-winning SMA 4 Denpasar, won all debates except the grandfinal in the National Schools Debating Championship. This year's team, consisting of debaters from the same school once more,  matched the unbeaten streak in the preliminaries. But this time they hope the ending will be rosier. The top three teams on the prelim tab all come from outside Java, contrasting the pattern in the varsity level which is overwhelmingly dominated by Java-based colleges. Perennial contenders Banten failed to advance to the knockouts this time. NSDC, Indonesia's top high school tournament, is province-based, not institution-based. Knockouts start today. The complete break list is as follows:

1. Bali
2. South Sulawesi
3. Aceh
4. Central Java
5. East Java
6. West Java
7. Maluku
8. East Kalimantan
9. West Nusa Tenggara
10. West Kalimantan
11. Jakarta
12. Yogyakarta
13. Central Sulawesi
14. Riau
15. North Sumatra
16. Jambi
