Members of Cranberry High School’s Mock Trial team competed in two trials at the Erie County Courthouse on January 30th .
The trial team won in the Plaintiff Vs. Grove City case by 97 points, but lost their second trial to Northwestern, who they lost to by 28 points last year in the District Semifinals.
The Defense Team Lawyers were Jenna Seigworth, Ellabay Perry, and Noel Bunyack, and the Defense witnesses were Kaia Dean, Brooke Whitling, and Hannah Neideritter.
The Plaintiff Lawyers were Brooke Whiting, Maria Anderson, and Hannah Neideritter, with the witnesses being Jenna Seigworth, Ellabay Perry, and Trevor Olson.
Unfortunately, the winning team will not be moving on to finals this year.
