Speech and Debate Nationals!
According to my Nirav, no one from Sig made it to break rounds in their primary events. Amy will probably try to compete in impromptu, and Rachael has a poetry program ready to go (Nirav has to return to Evansville to attend summer classes).

Good luck to Amy, Rachael, and the other Evansville people still left in the tournament!

On a side note, I find it very interesting that Victory Brief's assessment of Nationals summarizes with

In other words, watch out for MN, IN, CA, TX, and MO. In particular, it's almost guaranteed each year for there to be a National Champ from Eagan HS, or Apple Valley HS, or one of the Evansville schools, or Bellarmine! Talk about dynasties!

Indiana? A speech and debate powerhouse? Well last year, Indiana had several top OO, FX, and Poetry competitors (and the champion in each of those events!) but those results will be hard to duplicate, and it's very presumptuous to assume that a champion will come from "one of the Evansville schools," as several of the top schools in Indiana are now situated in Northern Indiana.
