Since September, Valley Torah Girls Division Mock Trial team has been working diligently preparing and practicing for the Los Angeles County Mock Trial Competition. This year, our school was one of 90 teams registered to participate. This past Monday, November 3rd, our defense team went against Valencia High School and won! Our prosecution will compete again on Monday with the hopes of moving on to the quarter finals competition. The team is fortunate to have Miss Ashley Pony, Mock Trial Coordinator, as their coach. She propelled them to success with her commitment and talent! A big thank you goes out to Mr. Joseph Avrahamy, parent and attorney coach. His dedication, assistance and expertise was beyond valuable for the competition. Another special thank you to Jessica Lidergot, who assisted the students with their questions and statements, while offering her experience as a lawyer, as well. Lastly, thank you to the Ohana family who all came out in support and assisted as drivers at the competition.
