The Rhinelander High School Mock trial team will be seeking back to back state titles this weekend in Madison.
The Hodags have been one of the more dominate teams having won 16 state titles in 30 years of the competition. The team has been just as dominate as of late, winning six of the last ten state titles.
The teams “argue” their case as both the lawyers and witnesses in the competition. Four preliminary rounds this weekend will determine the top two teams who will compete in the finals on Monday. Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson will preside over the final case.
Two members of last year’s team return in Senior Co-Captains Amber Sheth and Lydia O’Brien. Other team members include juniors Mike Anderson and Erin Tenderholt; sophomores Anna Catlin and Emily Ditzler; and freshman Ellie Rickman, Albiona Sabani and Sydney Shallock.
