Mock Trial Advances to State after Dominating Regions
After a dominant win in Round 5, the team is headed to St. Paul on March 2
The BHS Mock Trial Varsity 1 team is moving onto the State Tournament next month at the Woodbury Courthouse on March 2 and 3.
Playing as the defense, the team beat Ashby High School by 50 points in Round 5 of the Regional competition on February 13.
“We were so excited,” Elizabeth Bolin ‘24 said. “The entire next day I was just like, ‘Oh my God, we’re going to State.’”
According to Bolin, the team has been very prepared to face off against the opponents they’ve had so far this season. However, she’s nervous that the teams they might face off against at State could test the Mock Trial team in ways that they haven’t been so far.
“I feel like we’ve had it a little bit easy off,” says Bolin “and I’m really nervous about going against certain teams up at State.”
The Varsity 1 team is made up of Seniors Victoria Viteri, Reina Valli, Caleb Hultmann, Abby Seestrom, Lydia DesMairais, and Faith Mutterer, Juniors Elizabeth Bolin and Ayden Gaultry, and Sophomores Laryssa Laho, Britni Klatt, and Fia Carlson.
