[December 12, 2012]  NORMAL -- Lincoln Community High School senior Sara Shane continued her tour of champions Saturday at the Normal Community "Going for the Gold" speech tournament. Shane was the tournament champion in radio speaking again this weekend and also placed fifth in oratorical declamation.

Additional finalists from the LCHS speech team were senior Wyatt Phillis and junior Matthew Langdon, who placed third in humorous duet acting; senior Jacqueline Keysear, third in junior varsity oratorical declamation; Keysear and junior Madison Bishop, fourth in dramatic duet acting; and senior Kendall Katz, seventh in humorous interpretation.

"We are taking a well-deserved break from competition," said head coach Jennifer Keith. "The students have been working daily since Halloween on their material and performances, so we are taking the time off to perfect some things, change some others and let our speakers have some time to focus on their final exams next week.

"I'm extremely proud of these speakers," Keith continued, "as they make up a small but mighty team."
