Mock Trial Advances
Waynflete’s Mock Trial squad won its first round of competition last Saturday in impressive fashion. For Coach Curtis, some of the highlights were:
- Seeing Tiki Furo and Margaret Austin rooting for her squad from the jury box.
- Watching Acadia Weinberg and Izzy Floyd imitate Pit Bulls while cross examining witnesses.
- Seeing the judges swoon for Ben Riggleman and Jake Soley’s style.
- Seeing Austin Wojchowski utterly flummox the opponent’s effort at cross examining him.
Upon her return to school on Monday, Coach Curtis also warned US Director Libby that Thalia Muyderman, playing the Dean of Discipline in the trial, appears ready to take over his job.
The next round of competition occurs on Saturday, November 22, between 9:00 am and noon at the Cumberland County Courthouse, 205 Newbury St. The actual entrance on the weekends is on Federal St. Faculty, friends, and families are encouraged to attend.
