This Tuesday, the mock trial team won its "Sweet 16" tournament trial after the first time in over six years that the team made it farther than preliminary trials. "I was just really happy that we made it this far after all these years," senior Caroline Kreidberg said.

On Tuesday, March 12, Wayland High School’s mock trial team defeated Bishop Feehan High School in the “Sweet 16″ round of the Massachusetts Bar Association High School Mock Trial Program’s championship bracket with a score of 101-100. After Wayland’s victory, the team will proceed to the “Elite Eight” round, facing Marshfield High School at the Plymouth Probate & Family Court in Brockton at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13.

Due to the different structure of championship bracket trials, each team must participate in a coin flip before the trial begins. The winner of the coin flip then decides whether they want their defense or prosecution team to participate in the trial. Bishop Feehan won the coin flip and chose their defense team, which meant that Wayland’s prosecution team participated in the trial.

“I was excited about winning today’s meet,” senior Andy Marton said. “It’s great to know we still have a chance at winning the state championship.”
