This summer Hillsdale will offer two sessions of mock trial camp. The sessions will run from June 21-25 and August 2-6. The camp will feature an original case and will end with students conducting a trial using content they've created over the week. Any student entering 7th, 8th, or 9th grade, or any current Hillsdale student entering 10th grade is eligible to attend. You can register at bit.ly/Hillsdalemock. If you have any questions email Matt Springman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the first time Hillsdale will send more than one competitor to Gladiator, a national, invitation-only, one-on-one mock trial competition. Allison Rulli ('21) will make her third appearance, and she will be joined by Sammie Morris-Beber ('21), Pooja Agarwal ('23), and Jack Spillner ('24). Competitors present both sides of the case as attorneys and also play two witnesses over the course of two days. The case comes out on June 29 and they will have 25 days to prepare before competition begins on July 23rd.
Stay tuned here for results.
Hillsdale Celebrates Season; Abbie Phillips and Natalia Ortega Win Coaches' Awards
For the first time in more than a year we were able to meet in person to celebrate a fantastic season. Our second-in-the state team was finally able to get their medals, our county award winners got their certificates and plaques. Most importantly we got to see each other person (many people for the very first time), and we had a great time doing it.
Special congratulations to Abbie Phillips for winning the varsity coaches' award and to Natalia Ortega for winning the JV coaches' award.
On May 23rd and 24th two Hillsdale teams competed at the Tournament of Champions, a national tournament of 32 teams from 19 states. Hillsdale placed 2nd in one division, just missing the finals, and 4th in the other (both divisions consisting of 16 teams). It was a fantastic team effort.
Congratulations to Lexi Kolb and Cadence Puls for winning top witness awards, and to Pooja Agarwal and Jack Spillner for winning top attorney awards (and also winning automatic invitations to Gladiator in the process).
