This past weekend Columbia attended the New England Regional Championship Tournament in Worcester, Massachusetts. A total of 25 teams attended this tournament but only 8 advanced to the next level of competition. Team 514 took home a perfect 8 ballots and ended their weekend as the Regional Champions. Both Columbia 515 and 514 are excited to attend the Opening Round Championship Series (ORCS) later this month.
Along with advancing two teams, Columbia also brought home a total of five individual awards. Brittany Carroll-Watts and Harshitha Kilari both received Outstanding Witness awards. Stephanie Krent, Amy Hartzell, and Dana Prussian each received Outstanding Attorney awards. A huge congratulations to them and to the rest of Columbia Mock Trial for a truly outstanding job! Both teams will compete in White Plains on March 12 and March 13 and hope to advance to the National Championship Tournament in Des Moines, Iowa!
