Mock Trial Update 2/28 (Cecilia Lu)

On Tuesday, February 28, 2011, Centennial’s Mock Trial team faced off against Atholton at 5PM in District Court. The prosecution was slated to argue the fictional case of the State of Maryland v. Drew Hunter, in which it charged the defendent with three counts of reckless endangerment and one count of second-degree child abuse. The trial lasted almost two hours, and the judge found the defendant guilty of all counts of reckless endangerment, but not guilty of child abuse. CHS’s stellar performance earned it 51 total points over Atholton, which received 42 points. The team has emerged strong from its hiatus last year due to a lack of teacher sponsorship. It now boasts a 4-1 record and is ranked among the top three Mock Trial teams in Howard County.
