40 members of the Cary Academy Speech and Debate team braved the winter weather and traveled to Fayetteville to compete in the first ever All-Star Invitational hosted by Gray's Creek High School. The tournament was accelerated due to the inclement weather, but all four rounds were still completed, and the team had a strong showing coming away with first place sweepstakes, its fourth such title of the year.
We'd like to thank Randy Guard, Nancy Melamed, and Susan Peebles for judging!
