Mock Trial Team Continues Two Decades of Success
On March 2 and 3, the Tivy Mock Trial team traveled to Dallas to compete in the state Mock Trial competition. Under the direction of teachers Becky Likin and Leigh Cockrill, Tivy placed eighth out of twenty-four participating teams. This trip to state marks the twentieth appearance within the past twenty-five years of competition.
“The kids did amazing this year. It was a rebuilding year, with nine out of the twelve spots open for the team at tryouts. And just making it in the top ten in state is a big deal because the only thing that kept us out of the top four teams was a subjective score of 598 out of 600 total points from six judges. So the top ten teams were only separated by a total of two points out of four rounds of twelve judges,” sponsor and teacher Becky Likin said.
Mock trial team members include Melissa Munoz, Kristen Gonzales, Nicole Moody, Miriam Felps, PJ Bowie, Paxton Thedford, Blake Wampler, Jeremy Bunch, Stephen Berg, Gage Arbogast, Gus Arbogast, and Matthew Maupin.
Several team members were recognized with specific awards over the course of their season. These awards include Nicole Moody as “Outstanding Advocate” at the state competition, Paxton Thedford as “Outstanding Advocate” and Gus Arbogast as “Outstanding Witness” at the regional competition.
“The kids have learned so much and come so far! Just being in Mock Trial helps prepare them for a variety of future careers with valuable skills such as critical thinking, inductive reasoning, public speaking, and thinking on their feet,” Becky Likin said.
