(See video below of the announcement of the State Champion)

So proud of all the bright, respectful, determined students that made up this team.  So impressed with the dedication of their Teacher Coach Len Romanski.  I helped out as the team's Attorney Advisor.  The team was undefeated throughout the competition, going 9-0.

Thank you to Principal Andrew Snyder and Abington Heights High School for promoting the Mock Trial Program.

Sending great thanks also to the Young Lawyers Division of the Pennsylvania Bar Association for running a great virtual 2021 Mock Trial Season and to all of the volunteers who served as Judges and Jurors throughout the competition. Also send thanks to the Lackawanna Bar Association for running a great District Competition and the Monroe Bar Association for running a great Regional Competition.
