Woodward Debate reached the "Final Four" of NDCA Nationals, with Sachi Reddy '21 and Ashna Ghanate '22 defeating teams from North Broward Prep (FL), Glenbrook North (IL) twice, Westminster (GA), Montgomery Bell Academy (TN), St. Mark's School of Texas (TX), Niles West (IL), and Glenbrook South (IL). Sachi and Ashna eventually fell to a different Glenbrook North team in the semifinal round and were eliminated.

This semifinal finish marks Woodward’s best performance at NDCA since the Academy secured the championship in 2012. It is the fourth time that Woodward has reached the semifinals. 

Sachi and Ashna ended their season as champions at the University of Georgia Bulldog Debates and GFCA Varsity State and semifinalists at NDCA. They were 25-3 over the last stretch of the season.

Akbar Chranya '21 and Jack Hightower '22 also reached the elimination rounds of NDCA Nationals and finished as Double-Octafinalists.

In the novice division, freshmen Rishabh Jain and Aneri Patel reached the Octafinals.
