Mock trial final a cliff hanger

Last year's runner up for the county championship Catholic High was once again locked in battle with 2008 winner McCaskey High before four jury members in a court room presided over by County Judge Jeffrey D. Wright.

After evaluating the impressive presentations by both teams, the jury split 2 to 2 between McCaskey, representing the Plaintiff, and Catholic High, for the Defendant.

As a tie breaker, points awarded to attorneys and witnesses through out the contest were added up. Again the teams were dead even.

Finally, a third tie-breaking criteria was applied, and Lancaster Catholic won by the narrowest of margins.

For the victors, regional contests lie ahead and aspirations of reaching the state finals.

For the losers....there's next year.
