Mock Trial team members win awards

| February 21, 2019

Solanco’s Mock Trial teams have completed their seasons of competition against other local high schools. They participate in “mock trials” during which students serve as prosecutors and defense teams, and a panel of judges determines which teams were more effective and won, and which students performed particularly well and are deserving of awards.

While Solanco’s Mock Trial team lost a close contest to a very experienced Lancaster Country Day team  this week, Solanco’s Zoe Hinton won the award for Best Attorney, and Rachel Johnson and Aiden McBride split the Best Witness award. Other team members included attorneys Danielle Drumm and Shane Sollenberger, witness Brandon Daniel, and paralegal Sadie Kauffman.

The defense team lost via a tiebreaker to Manheim Township this week, having originally split the jury. Skylar Eshleman won Best Attorney; Azra Mutpacic won Best Witness. Other team members included attorneys Gabi Dolan and Lexy Heisler, witnesses Mia Grinestaff and Bailey Willis, and paralegals Owen Brazelton and Katie Jensen.

Solanco Mock Trial team coach Caley Roark expressed appreciation to attorney Janice Longer who provided the team with valuable legal assistance.
