Holy Cross High School’s Mock Trial Team has won both rounds of District competition and is preparing to face Carbondale Area High School in the semi-finals on Feb. 28.
The team advisors are Mrs. Janine Wetter and Atty. Jim Wetter. Team members are Shannon O’Malley, Tyler Williams, Emma George, Carsyn Cole, Ryan Burda, Cecilia Otis, Dan Haikes, Maura Kosek, Dhiraj Baniya, Mandi Lahl, Ben Mulvey, Journey Horeis, Zachary Kovaleski, Kendall Morrison, Giuseppe Pilone, and Chloe D’Avella.
The Mock Trial Team has been quite successful over the last eight years. In 2019, the team won the State Title and advanced to Nationals in Athens, GA., placing ninth out of 50 states. In 2020, the Team advanced to States, but because of Covid-19, the run was cut short.
