Mock Trial

Mock Trial 2021

Trenton Mock Trial competed with the top 12 teams in the state in the MIchigan High School Mock Trial State Finals on Saturday, March 20.  After hard fought rounds against teams from Forest Hills Eastern and Allen Park High School, we advanced with the top four teams to the semifinals.  The top four teams were Ann Arbor Community High School, International Academy, Ann Arbor Huron High School, and Trenton High School.  U of D finished just outside the top four in 5th place.  Trenton met Ann Arbor Community High School in the semifinals and lost a hard fought match by just a few points.  The decision of who advanced to the final round was based on judges ballots, so even though we had more points in the round, we missed out on our second ballot by a razor thin margin of 3 points.  That 2-1 decision ended our season, but resulted in our highest ever finish of #3 in the State of Michigan.  Ann Arbor Huron went on to win in the finals and was named state champion.  They will go on to compete as Team Michigan in the National High School Mock Trial Tournament in Evanston, Indiana.
