After many weeks of hard work, the Village Home Mock Trial teams (“VHMT”) competed at the Oregon High School Mock Trial Regional Tournament on Saturday, February 22, 2020. Team Green and Team Blue went toe-to-toe against some of the best schools in our region and displayed incredible levels of knowledge, poise, and professionalism. The day included some unprecedented challenges (for example, being asked to leave the building before the trial was completed and then walking three blocks to another building to finish in front of new judges!) but the team members rose to meet each one without missing a beat. Congratulations to both teams on a fantastic competition and good luck to Team Blue, who finished in the top four and earned a bid to the State Tournament on March 7th and 8th!
Special congratulations are in order for our MVP winners! MVP awards are presented by the opposing team. MVP Witness awards: Adam Lulich, Kayla Durand, Stephen Swanson, Zach Terhaar. MVP Attorney awards: Claire Johnston, Thomas Lowe (2), William Mueller (2).
