Sharon High Mock Trial Team Wins First Case
SHS next faces Westwood on Tuesday.
The Sharon High School mock trial team won its first case in a state tournament Monday.
Sharon defeated Needham in a preliminary trial of the 27th annual Mock Trial Program presented by the Massachusetts Bar Association.
Sharon next faces Westwood at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Brockton District Court, association spokesman Tricia Oliver said today.
More than 100 schools statewide are competing this season. Students will square off in a simulated courtroom, with more than 100 lawyers volunteering as coaches and judges, the association has said.
The state championship is March 23 in the Great Hall at Boston's Faneuil Hall.
