After taking home the American Forensics Association contest in early April, the Bradley University Speech Team won the National Forensic Association championship just a couple of weeks later. There are two national competitions in forensics—and Bradley won both this year.
This brings the Bradley Speech Team’s total to 43 team national championships and 162 individual national titles. According to the Associated Press, it is not only the most successful collegiate forensics program in the entire country, it’s the most successful collegiate team in any capacity, including sports. The Chicago Sun-Times writes that the team has “more championship team titles than the Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina, UCLA and Indiana basketball teams combined”—quite an impressive accomplishment on the Hilltop.
