Team History

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has boasted a very strong forensics program over the school’s history. In 1989 and 1990, the UW-Madison forensics team finished first (Division I) in the country at the prestigious National Forensics Association National Tournament. These first-ever national titles were accompanied by five individual events national champions and an overall pentathlon champion (Stephanie Kaplan, 1990). Despite these successes, budget cuts forced the team to be discontinued in 1991.

Recognizing the importance of a forensics program, incoming freshman students Christopher Klundt, Lindsay Barone and Brian Schaefers reinstated the program in 2001. Over the subsequent years, the team grew in size, strength and success. The team is now sponsored by the Letters & Science Honors Program, has an adequate travel budget, and has one paid part-time coach and two volunteer coaches.


The team's part-time coach, Ben Jedd, was a competitor at Bradley University from 1996-2000, where he had numerous individual national finals as well as numerous team national championships. He received his Masters from Ball State where he was the Assistant Director of Forensics and helped organize the NFA National Tournament. The team's two volunteer coaches are Vishal Jain (from Louisiana State University) and Christopher Klundt (former University of Wisconsin competitor).

Recent History

In 2007, the team had its best finish to date, placing 3rd (Div I) at the NFA National Tournament and 22nd at the AFA-NIET. Along with these two team finishes, the UW-Madison had their 3rd national final round appearance in just two years, the Duo team of Emily Barsness and Thom Rehwaldt, who placed 5th. In just a few short years, the team has accumulated a record of top finishes and is now a model for student-run forensics teams across the country.
