On Friday, the Lyme-Old Lyme mock trial team traveled to Middletown to participate in the Elite Eight of the statewide mock trial competition. The field started with over 70 teams competing in December and after several trials, LOLHS battled their way to the top 8 playoff position. The team began the morning with LOLHS's plaintiff versus the defense of Hall High School of West Hartford. Our plaintiff put up a good fight against Hall's defense and they pulled out a win.
The win in the morning allowed LOLHS to move forward to the Final Four. In the afternoon, the LOLHS defense was matched against the plaintiff from Ridgefield High School, a very tough opponent. In fact, the LOLHS defense had lost to Ridgefield by mere points in the previous round. With extensive preparation and team work, the defense pulled out a remarkable win against an admirable opponent.
This officially makes LOLHS one of the top two mock trial teams in the state! Next stop-the state championship at the Connecticut Supreme Court in Hartford on March 23rd! The LOLHS defense will take on Fairfield-Ludlowe's plaintiff in what is sure to be an exciting trial.
Coach Sarah Hylas and Coach Emily Kelly are thrilled with the progress this very new and young team has made over the course of six months. Their efforts and dedication should be commended.
