Rhinelander High School’s mock trial team finished eighth in the nation this weekend. 46 teams competed in the national tournament held in Madison.
Faculty coach Kathy Vick-Martini says it’s the best they’ve done at nationals in a decade. And that’s with seven of the nine members new on the team this year.
Senior members and co-captains Amber Sheth and Lydia O’Brien both earned recognition as “outstanding performers” in attorney roles. Three underclassmen from the Rhinelander team also earned “outstanding performer” recognition in witness roles.
