HILLSDALE TAKES THREE TO GLADIATOR '23: Pooja Agarwal Takes Ninth Overall; Nikki Donovan Wins Top Sophomore; Jack Spillner Wins Nobility Award
From June 21-23, Pooja Agarwal, Jack Spillner, and Nikki Donovan traveled to Atlanta, GA to compete at the Gladiator 1-on-1 Championship. The case, United States v. Blake Crosby, involved the alleged murder of a controversial Presidential candidate by a former Army sniper from the roof of a hotel in downtown Decatur, GA. The candidate was hit by a sniper bullet during a rally in Decatur Square. Competitors tried both sides of the case as attorneys, and played both witnesses over four rounds. Congratulations to Pooja Agarwal who finished in the top 10 for the second year in a row. Good luck at Berkeley! Congratulations to Nikki Donovan for winning top sophomore of the competition, along with a full scholarship to the Top Mock mock trial camp next summer at Furman College. And congratulations to Jack Spillner for winning the Nobility Award, given to that competitor who best exemplifies the spirit of civility, professionalism, and fair play. Jack was also selected by his fellow competitor to play the defendant in the championship round. Awesome job!
