Mock Trial is a competitive team that debates and helps push boundaries and a way to make new friends. It is sponsored by Thomas Nulf. 

“The keys to success in Mock Trial are  perseverance and professionalism,” said Mr.Nulf.  “Anyone who has dedication and the willingness to learn how to carry themselves professionally will be a success. ” 

There are many different keys to Mock Trial success.

“The key to Mock Trial success is being ready to go with your part,” senior and Black-team Captain Joshua Christian said. “If you know what your doing then you will be confident to do it. I have learned how to be prepared, how to make schedules, and be a leader since I am in leadership.”

There are many different parts to like about Mock Trial.

“My favorite part of Mock Trial is working with a competitive team and improving on my skills in a professional environment,” junior Riley Jones said.

The way they work in Mock Trial, It is easy to see why.

“It is a great way to get way to get out there. If you are shy you won’t be for long.” Christian says.

The team has even won trophies.

“In the previous 12 years I have coached, we have earned 9 trophies in state competition including best attorneys, and best witness designations, and the very first coaching award for sportsmanship in competition.” Nulf said.

It seems like Mr. Nulf has the bull by the horns or the witness by their statement.

“This is my 13th year to coach the BAHS Mock Trial Team, as an Assistant my first year, then as Head Coach after that,” Nulf said. “Mollie Conroy, ran the team for years prior, as did a coach named Mark Minnick and another fellow before him. I have tried to piece the history of Mock Trial  together, but I am not really sure how long I’ve been doing it beyond “a really long time,” Nulf said.

The team meets in room D116 after school on Wednesdays, and anyone can join.
