These Vanguard Vikings are heading into the semifinals of the Region 12 Texas High School Mock Trial Competition. Congratulations to Marshall for winning best witness (awards are given to 2 outstanding witnesses from the 4 preliminary rounds) and to Ellen for winning best advocate (awards are given to 2 outstanding advocates from the 4 preliminary rounds). We really have to brag on Ellen, especially, because she is a freshman competing, in many cases, against seniors AND because she does not “double” on both sides of the case like some lawyers do, meaning she received more votes in 2 prelim rounds than some lawyers did in 4 prelim rounds.
