Tivy Mock Trial Team Wins Regionals
The Tivy High School Mock Trial Team recently went 3-0 at a regional competition, taking first place. Under the direction of teachers Becky Likin and Leigh Cockrill, along with the generous assistance of attorney advisors Clay Steadman and Lucy Pearson, the students have been preparing after school two days a week for five months.
This year’s case was a criminal case concerning manslaughter. The case entails a story of two business partners who own a multi-million dollar company that designed an app to track fitness workouts. The partners in the company have a strained relationship, which ultimately evolves into a heated argument and shoving match during a workout session running up a parking garage stairwell. During the physical altercation, both partners shove each other back and forth, but the fight ultimately ends with one man crashing through the window of the 14th floor and falling to his death.
Students prepared both sides of the case (prosecution and defense) as well as opening and closing statements. A student witness also took the stand during the proceedings. The team will compete at the state competition March 5-8 in Dallas.
The team, left to right, is: Blake Wampler, Jackson Cockrill, Nolan Zuber, Michael Ray, Holden West, Monty McKeon, Amanda Blevins, Rachel Badillo, Adair Appleton, Ellie Butler, Bailey Havis and Matt Maupin.
