This October, seven Indian Hill High School (IHHS) students will participate in the Bulldog Invitational, an invitation-only mock trial tournament hosted annually by the Yale Mock Trial Association.

“Based on our seven state championships, one world championship, and Ethan Marx’s recent Gladiator national championship, Yale has taken note of our program,” said Indian Hill High School Teacher and Mock Trial Sponsor Steve Reger. “We are thrilled to receive this first-time invitation to compete at such an elite level.”

Yale’s Bulldog Invitational consists of two parts: A dynamic workshop series taught by Yale’s Mock Trial association and a four-round tournament where the top high school teams in the country have the opportunity to compete against each other. Indian Hill High School will be represented by students Ethan Marx, Sarah Motawi, Sydney Poffenberger, Audrey Bristol, Brooke Youngblood, Tacey Hutten, and Claire Hardek via an online format the weekend of October 17 and 18. 

“This is a testament to the world-class mock trial program we have developed within Indian Hill High School, and we are incredibly proud of our students who made this happen,” said Indian Hill High School Principal Jeff Damadeo.
