The East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School Mock Trial team competed in the annual New York State High School Mock Trial Tournament, the nation’s largest, at the Nassau County Supreme Court.

Juniors Najeri Felton and Jonathan Gonzalez, and sophomores Timothy Neckles, Sharon Oosterwijk, Natalia Rogala and Anthony Romano participated in the trial competing against other schools. The team offered insightful and articulate testimony to support its cases. Seniors Kristina McDougal and Daniel O’Moore offered excellent testimony and provided their experience to their underclassmen teammates as they participated in their final Mock Trial tournament of their high school career. 

Although East Rockaway did not advance to the next round of the competition, it carries a very positive outlook as the team prepares for next year’s Mock Trial competition. The Mock Trial team is very proud of its participation and is led by advisers April Francis and Thomas Canale.
