La Salle’s A team advances to ORCS!

We are pleased to announce that our La Salle University Mock Trial A team finished with a record of 5-3 this weekend at the American Mock Trial Association’s Regional competition and will be advancing to the newt stage of the national competition: Opening Round Championship Series in Washington D.C. from March 13th to March 15th. We were one of eight teams out of a field of twenty-six teams that will be advancing to ORCS. For a team consisting only of freshmen and sophomores, this is a remarkable achievement. Robert McDonough, sophomore co-captain of the team, won a Best Attorney award at the competition, and Jonathan Lai, freshman, won a Best Witness award as well.

In addition, our B team finished with an impressive 4-4 record. For a team that is completely new to the concept of collegiate mock trial, they did a fantastic job, especially since they had to compete at Regionals against mock trial powerhouse programs such as George Washington University and the University of Virginia.
