[January 19, 2013]  HEYWORTH -- The reign as radio speaking champion continues for Lincoln Community High School senior Sara Shane, as she was crowned the varsity champion Saturday at Heyworth's The Link Tournament.

Additional finalists for the LCHS speech team were senior Wyatt Phillis and junior Matthew Langdon, second in dramatic duet acting and fourth in humorous duet acting; junior Madison Bishop and senior Jacqueline Keysear, fourth in dramatic duet acting; Keysear, also fourth in junior varsity oratorical declamation; and senior Tegan Follis, fourth in poetry reading.

Heyworth's tourney was the first back for the team after a winter hiatus for finals and Christmas celebrations.

Head coach Jennifer Keith said her team's seventh-place finish was a great way to start 2013 for this small team.

"We have been plagued by illness, stomach flu and bronchitis, but it appears other teams are in the same boat," said Keith. "I am very proud of how our kids performed at this tournament and look forward to great things when we host in a few weeks."

Many of the team members are preparing for the LCHS winter play and hosting the Lincoln Community High School Endangered Speechies Tournament on Jan. 26 at Lincoln. The LCHS speech team will also host the IHSA regional tournament Feb. 2.

Any former "speechies" or fans and community members wishing to help with either tournament would be greatly appreciated. Contact Keith at 217-732-4131 or for more details.
