Mock Trial - First in Louisville and Second in State
Going into the final round, Collegiate Mock Trial Team was undefeated with 6 wins and 2 ties.
Our students gave it their all in a hard-fought battle in the final round of the Kentucky State MockTrial Tournament. Going into the final round, we were undefeated with 6 wins and 2 ties. Our winning streak came to an end in the championship match. However, we took home a trophy and were declared the 2nd best MockTrial team in the state!!
These students were unbelievable in their determination, tenacity, and teamwork. If you have never seen MockTrial, it is intense. All the life skills we want to instill in our children culminate in the courtroom. These kids think on their feet, argue points with evidence, speak before a judge citing case law and rules of evidence, work together to formulate a plan of attack, and pivot when a witness or lawyer attempts to derail their questions/testimony. Enough cannot be said about the team we took to Richmond and Lexington. There are no words for all the hard work and dedication our kids put in to make this weekend so successful, especially considering the numerous other activities and sports they participate in on a weekly basis.
