Brick Memorial Mock Trial Team Wins 2015-2016 County Championship


The Ocean County championship of the 34th Annual Vincent J. Apruzzese High School Mock Trial Competition was held Tuesday, January 19th at the Ocean County Courthouse in Toms River.

After 3 hours of testimony by student-portrayed witnesses and brilliant arguments by student prosecutors and defense attorneys, the Brick Memorial Mock Trial team were announced the winners.

Mayor Ducey, the volunteer Co-Coordinator for Ocean County Mock Trial, served as time-keeper for the event.

Brick Memorial defeated students from the MATES program of the Ocean County Vocational Technical School, the 2013 champions, by a narrow margin. Both prosecutors from the MATES team are also Brick residents.

Brick Memorial now advances to the state portion of the tournament in New Brunswick.
