The following are the results of the first Coaches Poll for 2014!

Each debater received 25 points for a 1st place vote, 24 for a 2nd place vote, etc. The total points were then divided by eligible ballots (a ballot from the debater’s school doesn’t count). First place votes are in parentheses. Most ballots were cast based on tournament results from Grapevine, Greenhill, Loyola, Wake, and Yale, so debaters who hadn’t yet debated this season may not appear or may be ranked lower than their success in previous years would suggest.
