Hillsdale fell in a very close match against a fantastic team. Hillsdale's B team finished fourth (of 14) in the Robbers Division. Hillsdale's C Team made a strong showing but did not place. Rhea Jain and Pooja Agarwal won the top witness awards. Pooja, along with Cole Baker and Jack Spillner also took home top attorney awards. Team B also won the Civility Award.
