Championship tournament bid for Mock Trial
One of Cornell College’s three Mock Trial squads won the American Mock Trial Association regional tournament in St. Paul, Minnesota, and earned a bid to the Opening Round Championship Series tournament.
The squad will compete at the opening round tournament in Anoka, Minnesota, March 13-15 for a chance to advance to the national championship tournament in Cincinnati, Ohio, in April.
The bid continues Cornell’s success on the mock trial stage. The nine-year-old program has sent squads to the opening round tournament seven times and to the national tournament five times. The program has had another strong year, with first-place finishes at tournaments at Xavier University, Illinois State University, and the University of Iowa, second and third-place finishes at Stanford University, and numerous individual awards throughout the season.
