is definitely worthy of praise," said Jennifer Keith, co-coach with
Abby Curry. "Speech is subjective — sometimes the judges like what

"Our thoughts and prayers do go out to our competitors and
friends from around Illinois and their communities that were hit
this Sunday in a tornado," Keith added. "While we compete against
them, the speechies around the state are definitely a family, and we
are devastated for their losses."
The team has a Thanksgiving hiatus and will return to competition
Dec. 7 in Bloomington High School's invitational.
