Mock Trial Team Wins National Tournament
This past March, Model’s Mock Trial team worked hard to win the 2020 State Championship tournament. To celebrate their victory, students were awarded letterman jackets with a patch on the sleeve to commemorate their outstanding teamwork and excellent performance.
When the national tournament was cancelled shortly after, the team was heartbroken.
But after the school year ended and the summer began, the team heard of a virtual Mock Trial tournament hosted by the Texas YMCA open to teams across the country.
With just two weeks of notice, the Model Mock Trial team began preparing to represent not only Model, but all of Kentucky.
When the tournament began, the team advanced through the rounds, and even competed in the Showcase Power Round, continuing to excel.
Ultimately, the Model Mock Trial Team ended up winning the entire national tournament!
We are incredibly proud of these young leaders for their continued success, including two who just graduated in the Class of 2020. We look forward to seeing the team compete and grow next year.
Congratulations to this team as well as their advisor, Dr. Lynette Noblitt for an outstanding year!
