WHS Mock Trial Team advances to county semi-finals

The 2021 Mock Trial team delivered a stellar performance at this year’s tournament and advanced to the county’s semi-finals—a first for Washingtonville High School. 

“The dedication and hard work put in by the team members—and volunteer community member and lawyer advisor Mr. Michael Ohm—enabled us to have such a successful showing,” said high school teacher Peter Sal. “We wish the best to our graduating seniors, and are already looking forward to next year's tournament.”

Graduating seniors this year are Ava Graziano, Matthew Mahabir, Adam Purisic, Emma Rudzinski, Hannah Sacco, Samantha Soehnlein, Shavonne Strelevitz, and Alisa Younger.  

Team member Alisa Younger was also awarded a $100 dollar scholarship for leadership, work ethic and performance this year.
