Record Four Mock Trial Teams Headed to States!
Orange High School is sending a record four teams to the State Mock Trial Competition in March 2019. The teams were selected after a challenging Regional competition at the Cuyahoga County Courthouse with a fifth team competing at the Lake County Justice Center. Only six of 14 teams were selected to move on to the State Competition from the Cleveland event including all four OHS Teams: Hitchcock, Scorsese, and Tarantino and all-freshman team Coppola. In a highly contested trial in Lake County, the fifth OHS competing team (Spielberg) barely missed joining the others.
The OHS students collectively received 14 individual awards including Best Attorney Awards to: Raghav Bhatia, Anna Brateanu (double), Katie Brateanu, Jackson Leb, Sophie Newman, Mia Peterman, Dayna Rapkin, and Aidan Stearns with Best Witness Awards going to: Faye Fahsbender, Sarah Kirsh, Halle Morris, Robert Miron, and Julian Perry. The Four Advancing Teams will compete in Columbus at the State Tournament March 7-9, 2019 as part of the top 32 teams in the state.
