This year, Athens Academy fielded two Mock Trial teams—the Green Team and the White Team. Both teams performed exceptionally well on Saturday, February 1. The Green team ranked third in the region and is advancing to the District competition at the UGA Law School on Saturday, February 22.
Athens Academy’s teams picked up a total of nine awards, with junior Jessica Ford winning an unprecedented three Outstanding Witness awards. In addition, junior Clara Miller won two Outstanding Attorney awards, freshman Lucy Rentz and sophomore Michael Klass each won an Outstanding Attorney award, and sophomore Sara Mack Lowe and freshman Taylor Leach each won an Outstanding Witness award.
Special thanks to attorney coaches Jack Clarke, Emily Escoe, Courtnay Leach, and Roy Mannoll for advising the teams, as well as to faculty coaches Alan Hickerson and Zebbie Watson.
