|Tufts Mock Trial "A-Team" 2011|
|3rd Place Champions|
Originally a member of the B-Team, I was brought on the the A-Team late in the game as an alternative; I prepared the witness role of "Dr. Gardner," in case we needed to run him. Unfortunately (for me), the team never needed the alternative witness; we got to run our case, as planned, every time. As a result, I got to keep time, take notes, take pictures, and, very importantly, tweet. I also went to watch the final championship round, UCLA vs. NYU. The national champion was UCLA, with a 6-2 record. Tufts also achieved a 6-2 record, only with a lower combined strength (weighted score based on the records of the opponents you faced).
The weekend was a blast! I can't wait for next year's criminal case - and next year's tryouts. Bring on the freshmen!*
