SWS Mock Trial Competition

The 31st annual SWS Mock Trial took place on Tuesday, 26 November. Students from Wheatley, Roslyn, Syosset, Glen Cove, North Shore and Great Neck North competed against each other in what was a terrific experience for all involved (Wheatley actually sponsored three teams for the tournament). This full-day event was organized by Mr. Pat Clarke, the SWS Moderator. Additional support was provided by Dr. Staudt and Mr. Bernstein, the faculty advisors for our Mock Trial Team.

We were fortunate to have the support of some of our local judges and attorneys, including Mr. Steve Barnwell, Mr. Bob Greco, Mrs. Ellen Kotin, Mr. Martin Meaney and Mr. Robert Vella.

We are thrilled to announce that one of the Wheatley teams defeated the Glen Cove team in the Final Round to claim victory for the event!

One thought

  1. Congratulations all around to the students and their hardworking mentors. I have watched many of these students over the course of 3–4 years, and it is a tribute to both the individual students and to their coaches that the older students take responsibility to mentor the younger ones as they come on board. The teams have always worked hard and have not always come away with awards to declare their “winner” status. Yet Mr. Bernstein and Dr. Staudt remind them that true winners know their worth with or without the “glory.” Still, the glory was awfully sweet this time, wasn’t it?!
