Mari Tomanelli, Lauren Budd, Jessie Sweeney, Charlie Hanscom, Ray Hummels, Patrick Davis, Kailey Holmes, and Isa Tomanelli are John Bapst’s Mock Trial Team for 2013.
The John Bapst Mock Trial team prepared over the course of three months on a fictional criminal case that was written by the Maine State Bar Association. The students thoroughly studied both the facts of the case and various witnesses’ testimonies. Two lawyers in the community, Mrs. Marianne Lynch and Mr. Charles Budd, assisted the students in their preparation for the November 2nd competition in which Bapst faced Brewer High School. Bapst performed well in the competition, earning a spot in the second round against Carrabec High School.
