On February 10, 2016, the Mock Trial team was triumphant over Tuscarora taking the team to a 3-1 record. This is the best that the team has done in years, and much of the credit is given to Mrs. Jamie Hendi and Mrs. Kathleen Chapman, the student advisers.

The team includes Grace Weaver, Harrison King, Datlon Harris, Cat Detrick, Garret Gillespie, Hugh Norko, Makenzie Llewllyn, Kristen Gagne, Maria Pellicier, Isabella Madrid, Micheal Zerr, Patrick Conboy, Sofia Schuller, Ryan Stark, and Brenna Lindsey.

The result of the match was 50-42, based on the points awarded by the judge. Tuscarora’s adviser gave the award of Star- Witness to Ryan Stark and Star-Attorney to Maria Pellicier.

The team competes at the Frederick County Courthouse in either the District or Circuit courtrooms. “The rooms are very intimating. It makes everything feel so real,” said Micheal Zerr.

This year’s civil case is about a young lacrosse player who suffered a severe blow to the head during a game and has permanent damage. The mother is suing the lacrosse clinic for negligence after the clinic allowed her daughter to continue to play after she already had a concussion. The lacrosse team states that the mother knew of the risk and that the mother allowed her daugher to play; therefore, the lacrosse team faults the mother.

Coming off multiple losing seasons Mrs. Hendi said, “This has been an amazing season so far. The team crushed them and it was awesome to watch.”

The team is very dedicated to practice and has practice at least three times a week. While this can be very time consuming, there have been very rewarding results.

Since the team is so big this year, the participant have made many new friends. “The bus rides and practice are extremely entertaining. Everyone is talking and singing and just being themselves it’s been nice to see everyone doing their thing,” said Harrison King.

If you want to see the team in action the next match is on February 17, 2016 at the Frederick County Courthouse. Visitors are not permitted to enter after 5:00 p.m., so be sure to arrive early.
