We very much appreciate the professional manner in which all teams presented their respective sides during this competition and the cordial conduct exhibited by all students. Congratulations go to the teams from Cazenovia and Fayetteville-Manlius, these schools will move on to the local Mock Trial 2016 final next week. Then, F-M will present prosecution to Cazenovia’s defense.
