The THS Mock Trial defense team was busy last Wednesday and Thursday night competing against Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo High Schools at the County Court House in SLO. The Eagles made strong performances but lost both of their trials.
Mock Trial Advisor Haley Warren said, “last week’s trials were tough losses but [combined with prosecution victories earlier in the week] they were enough to get us into the semi finals so we are thrilled about that.”
In this weekend’s match up senior Blake Fardanesh won both Wednesday and Thursday’s Most Outstanding Opponent award. THS freshman Molly Floberg got a special shout out from one of the scorers after the trial for her portrayal of Detective Eisenberg.
The THS prosecution team (pictured above), a week and a half ago, swept Morro Bay and Atascadero High. Based on both performances THS is advancing to the semifinals which will be tonight at the San Luis Obispo Courthouse with the THS prosecution team facing off against the defense team of Arroyo Grande. The trial starts at 6:15. A loss tonight would end the season but a victory tonight would send the Eagles to Thursday’s county finals.
