Mock Trial Competition

     On Friday, November 2nd Chadron High mock trial teams, Team 1 and Team 2 had a practice trial against Gering's mock trial teams, Team Gold and Team Blue.
     The two teams had a schedule from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Although both of Chadron's two teams did well, only team one won one of the trials out of the two, while team two did not win any of the trials.       The judges that helped out with this practice competition were attorney Amy Patras, judging the first competition with Team 1 vs. Team Gold with the jury box filled in by Rex Cogdill, Drew Pope, Kristi Crowell, and Randy Cullers. Drew Pope then filled in as a judge for Team 2 vs. Team Blue with the jury box filled by Rex Cogdill and Kristi Crowell. Then Team 2 reappeared again to go against Team Blue with Judge Russ Hartford, and the jury box filled by Matt Watson and Randy Cullers. And Team 1s only win was against Team Blue judged by Judge Russ Hartford, and the jury box was filled by Rex Cogdill and Matt Watson. The judges have given great advice to both Chadron and Gering for improving their performance.
     Chadron's mock trial teams have been practicing this case since early September. They come after school on every Tuesday and Thursday in order to fully understand the case. They are currently preparing for districts on November 6, and if they succeed in districts they will continue for state competition in December.
