Mock Trial teams 2017

CONWAY, Ark. (October 27, 2017) – Hendrix Mock Trial competed in the Blues City Tournament at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, October 20-21, 2017. This year, Hendrix Mock Trial is fielding two teams, Team Thurgood Marshall, led by Jordan Borst ’19 and Alex Tiller ’19, and Team Ruth Bader Ginsburg, led by Ginny Greer ’19 and Claire Frueauff ’18. 

Both teams excelled in this scrimmage tournament, and received top witness and attorney awards in each of the four rounds. In addition, Borst and Frueauff received Most Valuable Player awards. 

The teams look next to the regional competition that will take place in the spring, with hopes of advancing to the Opening Round Championship Series (ORCS) and, ultimately, the National Championship Tournament. In twice-weekly practice sessions, the teams have been preparing to compete since the beginning of this semester. 

“We work on building a case theme, characterizing witnesses, learning objections, and studying relevant case law,” said team member Kimberly Tepera ’18. 

In addition to the five team members mentioned above, this year’s mock trial teams include Hannah Burdette ’19, Alex Berner ’19, Zack Brownlee ’21, Cordell Campbell ’19, Henry Edwards ’21, Makenzie Ferrier ’21, Gabrielle Fulton ’19, Katlyne Gillam ’21, Matthew Haley ’21, Michael Hulsey ’19, Emily Lewis ’21, Katie McNamara ’21, Ragan Price ’21, and Rachel Stacks ’21.
