Mock Trial Team Concludes Season
The Polar Bear Mock Trial Team concluded their 2010-2011 season with Regional competition that was held at the Hamilton County courthouse in Cincinnati. The competition was a disappointment for the Bears, as they failed to qualify either team for nationals for the first time in three years. Dr. Jo Ann Scott felt that the talent on the teams this year should have taken them farther, but that they seemed to have a mental block when competing against larger schools such as OSU or Miami of Ohio. Next year, Scott plans to replace one tournament with a weekend in Chicago scrimmaging against top teams from the city.
The only bright spot came when Brandon Bryant was named an Outstanding Attorney for the Region. Wait 'til next year Bears!
