Mock Trial Team wins regional tournament
Posted 02/03/2017 02:34PM
The Galloway Mock Trial Team recently won the regional tournament for the first time in school history, beating out seven other schools. In addition to being awarded first place as a team, the following students earned individual awards:
- Nicole Hartshorn '19
- Sam Levy '17
- Ellie Kaufman '19
- Jennifer Byrd '17 (two awards)
- Rachel Schiffer '19
- Ahmadu Simpson '17 (three awards)
- Ari Grinberg '19
Coach of the team, Dr. Matt Vieron says, "The thing that most people don't realize is that coaches don't have any sort of communication with the students during each of the trials. The students are left completely on their own to think on their own two feet for all three rounds, lasting over two hours each. The students themselves know how well they really did!"
With this win under their belt, Mock Trial advances to the District Competition on Saturday, Feb. 18. Go Scots!
