High School Mock Trial
Central Lyon finished 25th out of 32 teams that qualified for state competition; 105 teams total. We went against Urbandale, Marion Home School & Davenport in three rounds at state and ended with a 1-2 record. Things went very well considering we had to work around Spanish trip, NASA, All State Speech, State Jazz Choir & State Mock trial all happening within 4-5 days.
We scored extremely high this year and the students continued to get better each round they performed. This year’s case was a lawsuit against a high school student who developed an app for grading tests, however the app contained a Ninja which allowed students to cheat by getting correct answers. IPhone pulled the app and Cobra Kai who invested into the company lost all of their $.

Note from Terry Van Berkum: "Good way to go out! First year we did mock trial we made it to state and my last time made it to state."
