Hendrix Mock Trial Team Qualifies for Opening Round of Championship Series

CONWAY, Ark. (February 14, 2019) – Hendrix Mock Trial competed February 8-10, 2019, at the Regional Tournament that took place at the University of Texas, Dallas. Winning five out of eight ballots, the team qualified for the Opening Round Championship Series (ORCS), to be held in Memphis, Tenn., on March 15-17.

Mock Trial is an academic competition in which students receive a case packet, including facts, case law, and evidentiary and procedural rules. Based on that packet, the students prepare a full jury trial presentation for competition. The Hendrix Mock Trial team is completely student-run and has been active for seven years. 

“We have been working on this year’s case since late August, and hold two meetings per week,” said Ragan Price, the team’s media director.

In addition to the ballot wins for the group, team co-captain Ginny Greer ’19 received a Top Attorney award. 

Team members include Alex Berner ’19, David Brown ’19, Blythe Bull ’19, Hannah Burdette ’19, Allison Chamberlain ’22, Henry Edwards ’20, Gabrielle Fulton ’19, Ginny Greer ’19 (co-captain), Matthew Haley ’21, Michael Hulsey ’19, Katie McNamara ’21, Ragan Price ’21, Tristen Starnes ’22, Alex Tiller ’19 (co-captain), and Rebecca Williams ’21.
