The Herricks Mock Trial team is advancing to the "Sweet 16" after winning their most recent competition on March 4. Senior Brandon Marafino and sophomores Stephanie Chan and Maria DeFex were the lawyers who successfully defended their case against a team of competing lawyers from Valley Stream South High School. The witnesses for Herricks this round were sophomores Riya Mohan, Asim Ebrahim and Amber Xie. The team is excited to have had so many talented underclassmen participate in the trials this year. The team looks forward to competing at the next round at a date to be determined the future.
