Indian Hill Schools, Monday, December 16, 2019 – By Heather Higdon

The Indian Hill High School (IHHS) Mock Trial Team has five reasons to celebrate just before winter recess; Braves earned their fifth-consecutive victory at the fifth-annual MockHawk Tournament hosted by Miami University the weekend of December 14-15.

“In the four previous years of this tournament, no school other than Indian Hill has taken home the title, so the expectations were high – and our kids did not disappoint,” said IHHS teacher and Mock Trial coach Steve Reger.

IHHS junior Brooke Youngblood and sophomore Paige Falter earned Outstanding Witness awards. Sophomores Avery Valz, Tacey Hutton, and junior Ethan Marx (the third highest scoring attorney in the entire tournament) won Outstanding Attorney awards. The IHHS Mock Trial Team defends their title at the University of Cincinnati Tournament in January.
