Nine students represented Vanguard at the Region XII Mock Trial Tournament at Baylor University School of Law on Jan. 26-28.
Alex Krzywonski, Conner Swanton, Jantzen Slaughter, Moshe Dolejsi, Dylan Losey, Ian Lovett, Isaiah Ellis, Abbey White, and Tamura Dunbar comprised the mock trial team for the 2008-2009 academic year. Vanguard government, economics and history teacher, Marcus Johnson, served as team coach. Johnson holds a JD from Baylor University School of Law.
The Vanguard team competed against teams from Waco, Midway, Reicher, West, and University High Schools. All teams worked on presenting a hypothetical case authored by the Dallas Bar Association.
The Vanguard team and its sponsor put in many hours after school perfecting their individual roles as lawyers, witnesses, and timekeepers. The lawyers who judged the competition named Moshe Dolejsi as the best student lawyer out of all the participants. We are proud of Moshe and all the previously mentioned students for their efforts and are looking forward to even better results next year.
