The Saint Vincent College mock trial teams completed their season at the American Mock Trial Association Regional Tournament at Stevenson University in Maryland Feb. 23-25.
On the first day of competition, the upperclass team finished with three wins, four losses and a tie against Stevenson University and two wins against the University of Scranton. On the second day, the team conducted trials against both George Washington University and Columbia University. They finished in 16th place out of 28 schools competing.
The upperclass team will be graduating four seniors this year – Rebecca McCullough, political science major from Harrisburg; Brenton Sige, psychology major from Harrison City; Ashley Oravetz, criminology, law and society major from Pittsburgh (15239); and William Culver, political science major from Indian Head. All of them plan to attend law school in the fall.
Saint Vincent College mock trial teams are coached by Michael Arabia and George Miller.
Students on the team can earn an optional two credits per semester by signing up for the corresponding trial advocacy course which is offered in conjunction with the mock trial program.
The year-end mock trial showcase dinner will be on Friday, April 13, at the Fred M. Rogers Center beginning at 5:30 p.m. Pre-registration is requested. The cost is $30 for Saint Vincent faculty members and $50 for all other guests.
