ALSA UI E-Comp 2014: High School Title Goes Back to Bali
#2 SMA 4 Denpasar A (Yunindita Prasidya, Putu Ayu Saraswati, Denny Adiputra) and #4 SMA 1 Denpasar A (Elizabeth Hanakata, Biani Himawan, Keila Ayu) defeated their semifinal opponents to create an all-Bali final in the high school category of the 2014 ALSA UI English Competition and secure the title stays in the hands of a Balinese school for the fourth time in a row. The former won the trophy in 2011 and 2012 while the latter was last year's champ. No other institution-based debate tournament is more prestigious for Indonesian high schools than ALSA UI E-Comp. The cross-city rivalry shows the seriousness in both schools in developing their debate programs is above the rest. The final will run this afternoon.
