Holmes dominates Mock Trial Regionals Field

Scott Holmes was one of two double award winners as an Outstanding Witness at the American Mock Trial Association Regionals competition held at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minn. Holmes portrayed the Plaintiff Riley Winter and the expert witness Dr. Victor Fogel to win double award nominations. All team members earned individual nominations for Outstanding Attorney or Outstanding Witness awards during the four round tournament.

The UW-Superior Mock Trial team finished in the middle of the twenty-four team field with a 3-4-1 record at the event. Dr. Maria Cuzzo, Head Coach, said "we were in a strong rebuilding year and this group achieved so much during the year - first place at the Superior Durst, fourth place at the Hatting St. Thomas School of Law tournament and multiple individual awards throughout the year. It was a terrific year given the inexperience of the group and we are excited about the potentials for next year's Mock Trial team."

This year's Mock Trial team was led by officer/captains Karlie Mattson, Brittany Hewitt, Nick Muska and Autumn Bass. Team members also included Scott Holmes, Reggie Semanko, Kennth Benz, Arabella Gigliotti and Melody Maleski.

The team is coached by Dr. Maria Cuzzo (Head Coach - Legal Studies and Criminal Justice), Eric Burr, Cassy Burr, Mark Fruehauf and Jaramy Hansen. Burr, Burr and Hansen are all Mock Trial alumni now working and living in the community and returning to volunteer with the team. Fruehauf is the newly elected Douglas County District Attorney.

Next year's case will be a criminal case sponsored by the American Mock Trial Association. Consider joining the team next year when open recruitment opens in the Fall 2017 Semester.
