The Forest Hills Eastern Mock Trial team traveled to the Veteran’s Memorial Courthouse in Lansing on Saturday, March 23rd, after placing in the top two teams at the Kent County Regional tournament last Saturday. Teams at the State Finals are ranked by their scores and power-matched, with more than half of the teams eliminated after the morning rounds.
The FHE team survived the morning rounds with wins over Yale High School and Warren Woods High School and moved into the afternoon final rounds. In the finals, they faced off against perennial powerhouse Kalamazoo Central High School (a team that placed fifth in the National Tournament in 2018).
While they did not win, but FHE was thrilled with its fourth-place finish at the tournament and hope to return to the State Finals again next year.
