After winning in their first three matches, the Mock Trial team played its fourth match of the year this past Wednesday night against the highly touted Stuyvesant School. Lawyers Chaim Roffman (’16), Yehuda Goldberg (’16), and Ben Zuckier (’17) argued on behalf of Officer Flanagan. They faced the defense of the Stuyvesant School who supported the alleged drug dealer, Kelly Roberts. The witnesses, Leslie Mooney, Officer Flanagan, and Dr. Jordan Taylor, a forensic chemist who specialized in the particular drug that Roberts allegedly sold, were played by CJ Glicksman (’16), Mordechai Flamenbaum (’19), and Noam Mayerfeld (’19), respectively. After three heated hours of opening statements, direct examinations, cross examinations, objections, and closing statements, MTA unfortunately did not emerge victorious. They gained sixty-two out of sixty-five possible points (falling only two points short of their opponents). Unfortunately, this playoff loss means elimination from the tournament and they will thus not advance to the final round. Nevertheless, they hold their heads up high after another incredible season and look to improve and perhaps take home the gold next year.
