Congrats to the participants and winners of the Mock Trial Competition in Saipan 2010.
First place winners: MOUNT CARMEL SCHOOL. Final tally was 6 to 3 in their favor. They will travel to Philadelphia for the national competition in May 2010.
Second place winners: MARIANAS BAPTIST SCHOOL. Hard fought. Good job.
Third place winners: SAIPAN SOUTHERN HIGH SCHOOL. They're already talking about next year!
Fourth place winners: ROTA HIGH SCHOOL. First time in the winners circle and great performance.
Team Professionalism award: MARIANAS HIGH SCHOOL. This award speaks volumes. Congrats.
I don't have all the individual awards (best prosecution attorney, witness, best defense attorney, witness), but what I do know is that MHS student Christian Cruz won for Best Prosecution Witness; MCS student Anastasia Schweiger won for Best Defense Witness. I also heard that the best attorney awards on both sides went to MBA students (but I don't know the names of the winners).
The competition was very good. The students worked very hard and show tremendous talent and promise. Congratulations again to everyone who participated. Thanks for a good show!
