Last school year the Mock Trial team really raised the bar by going all the way to state competition and getting 4th place. This year the Mock Trial Team, lead by Shon McAteer and captains Robby Renson and Jared Danaher for the purple team, and Madison Swanson and Kameryn Pauly for the white team, plan on going even further.
On their annual Boston trip they toured Cambridge University and Harvard University. After going through many seminars they competed in a scrimmage and performed very well.
Although they learned a lot sophomore Madison Swanson says, “Honestly the best part of the trip was spending time with the team and getting to know each other better”.
Swanson has been on the team for 2 years and helped put this year’s team together.
Swanson also said, “I am most excited for the competition in February, because all of our hard work will have paid off.”
The team has been practicing for a couple of weeks preparing for their upcoming competition in February.
