Mount Mercy Mock Trial

 

                The Mount Mercy Academy Mock Trial team continued competing via Zoom.  The team won its first case against Bennett High School and dropped a close trial to Saint Francis High School in its second match.  The team then advanced into the quarterfinals and competed against Saint Francis once again.  Unfortunately, Mount Mercy once again fell to Saint Francis in the quarterfinal case.

                Mount Mercy’s Mock Trial team is advised by Mount Mercy Academy social studies teacher Steven McCrea.  The defense team is comprised of seniors Megan Jozwiak (Springville), Gianna Lauciello (Orchard Park), Maddie Lickfeld (Buffalo) and Claire Mullen (Orchard Park) and sophomores Catherine Klodzinski (Buffalo) and Sophia Nasca (Eden).  The plaintiff team consists of four sophomores, Klodzinski, Megan Amicone (Buffalo), Jillian Schneck (Buffalo) and Madison Serafini (Buffalo), junior Dominique Khoury (Buffalo) and freshman Addison Barth (Hamburg).

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
