This past Tuesday night the Mock Trial team faced Hunter College High School in the “top thirty-two” round of the New York Mock Trial competition. Only thirty-two teams were left in the New York City region (originally consisting of over one hundred teams). All teams came prepared with extensive notes and dedicated coaches.

Unfortunately for MTA, after two hours of speeches, interrogations, and arguments, Hunter came out with the win. The match was close, and lawyers CJ Glicksman (’16), Yehuda Goldberg (’17) and Yair Gross (’16), along with witnesses Larry Likhtenstein (’15), Rafi Felder (’17), and Dovid Tanner (’18), put up a good fight, constructing a very convincing case.

This loss means the end of the season for the Mock Trial team, but the students are ready to get an early start next year and with the help of their outstanding coach, Noah Pollack, maybe even make it as far as the finals.
