15 members of the Cary Academy Speech and Debate team ventured to our nation's capital to compete in the Patriot Games hosted by Geroge Mason University. Despite having to deal with an intense winter storm the team turned in some outstanding performances with several students advancing to the elimination rounds in their respective events. CA had four LDers advance to the elimination rounds, tied for the most of any school.
