History

Dorman is the perpetual defending champion of not one but two national tournaments, as both the ASCN TOC and the Stars 2000 had Dorman as the reigning winner when they dissolved.

2006-2007

The A team consisting of Paolo Arce, Nick Clusserath, George Stevens, and Arsalaan Salehani placed 4th at the 2007 HSNCT

2007-2008

The A team consisting of Paolo Arce, Nick Clusserath, George Stevens, and Arsalaan Salehani placed 5th at the 2008 HSNCT while the B team, consisting of Todd Faulkenberry, Freddy Deangelis, Kevin Lybrand, and Kleve Granger, placed 4th.

2008-2009

The A team consisting of Todd Faulkenberry, Freddy DeAngelis, Kevin Lybrand, and Kleve Granger placed 2nd at the 2009 HSNCT.

2009-2010

2010-2011

The A team consisting of Sam Abrams, Saif Alimhomed, Mariya Mohammed, and Tabitha Walker tied for 21st with the B team consisting of Meghan Clusserath, David Koser, Madhav Kumar, Brian Owen, and Robert Lawson at the 2011 HSNCT. The A team placed 9th at the 2011 NSC.

2011-2012

The A team consisting of Meghan Clusserath, Madhav Kumar, Brian Owen, and Tabitha Walker tied for 13th at the 2012 HSNCT and placed 7th at the 2012 NSC.

2012-2013

This year saw an A-team consisting of a returning cast of seniors Meghan Clusserath, Madhav Kumar, Brian Owen, and junior Tabitha Walker, while the B-team included juniors Chase “Big Fudge” Fleming, Lee Holden, and Lane Yates, Asrar Alimohamed, and later, the highly improved sophomore, Himendra Perera. The Dorman A-team won the UVA Cavalier Classic, BISB at Brookwood, CATT at Chattahoochee, Collins Hill, the Rockford Auburn Mirror of Harvard Fall, and the Midwest Championship at Northwestern. Both teams also placed highly at the Spring Championship at the University of Kentucky, the Texas Invitational, and the Wildcat Tournament (including the B-team’s only victory over the A-team all season) at Northwestern University. Also, a team consisting of Lee Holden, Brian Owen, Tabitha Walker, and Lane Yates finished 3rd at the National History Bowl in Washington, D.C.

The 2013 HSNCT in Atlanta, Georgia saw a very strong run by both teams, with the A-team finishing tied for 8th, going 8-2 on Saturday and 3-2 on Sunday. The B-team went 7-3 on Saturday, but followed up with a disappointing Sunday, finishing tied for 33rd after going 8-5. The 2013 NSC at the University of Maryland went better for both squads, with the A team finishing 4th while the B team finished 14th.

2013-2014

Following a 2nd place finish at Ezell Harding, the new A team, consisting of seniors Chase “Big Fudge” Fleming, Lee Holden, Tabitha Walker, and Lane Yates won the Missouri Open mirror at Duke and 2013 ACF Fall South at Georgia Tech. At the 2013 Cavalier Classic at UVA, the A team, with Himendra Perera filling in for Chase Fleming, went 12-0 to win the tournament, with 7th and 8th place finishes from the B and C team respectively. At the 2013 VCU Winter Tournament, the A team went undefeated to win the tournament, followed by a 3rd place finish for Dorman B, and strong performances by the C and D teams. The A team won the CATT IX tournament, with the B team getting 3rd. The A team, with Shub Mehta filling in for Tabitha Walker, got second at the Bulldog Brawl after a comeback victory in the second half by Chattahoochee. The B team won third and the C team won fifth. The Dorman JV A team, consisting of Zainab Dossaji, Shub Mehta, Danielle Michaud, and Alex Wood, won the Brookwood JV tournament. Dorman A hit some bumps in the road, playing well but erratically at Texas Invitational and then dropping some games at Prison Bowl. However, they bounced back by winning Jag Bowl VIII. The next week, Dorman A, B, and C took first, second, and third place respectively at the Collins Hill Season Ender.

The A team went to the National History Bee and Bowl in Arlington, Virginia, where they tied for fifth in the Bowl. Tabitha Walker and Lee Holden got to the semifinals and quarterfinals respectively in the Bee. At the 2014 NSC the Dorman A team went 13-6 for an 11th place finish, while the B team went 8-7 to finish 39th.
