Jeanna Pillainayagam ‘19 and Asha Mior ‘20 recently returned from competing at the 2018 National Public Speaking Championships in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Nationals featured the very best public speakers from across the country, with a number of competitors who had even competed and won at the Worlds level in previous years.
At the start of the season, conventional wisdom would have thought it would be a transition year, having only one returning player from last year. It would have also been understandable to also keep expectations low given two key players were unavailable for the season (rehabbing from injuries) and LFA running with a team of only 8 players (three of whom are grade 10’s)... but someone forgot to tell this team. The Angels through a collective team effort advanced to the provincials in a hard fought 80-59 win against a scrappy Pitt Meadows.
