Mock Trial Advances to State
On March 8, the High School Mock Trial team traveled to the Sioux City Convention Center for their regional competition. The team competed against 10 other teams in 2 rounds of competition. The first round we participated as the Plaintiffs in the case, and the third round we were the Defense. The team received second overall, and is advancing to the state competition at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines on April 4 and 5.
The results of our first round match up were close; Central Lyon outscored the other team (combined scores) 238.5 to 225. The second round was not as close with CL scoring 267.5 and the opposition scoring 224.
We look forward to traveling on to Des Moines and representing Central Lyon against the best in the state!
Mock Trial is coached by Sam Kruse. Thanks to attorney Jen Wippert and county attorney Shayne Mayer for all their work helping the mock trial teams.
