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.
