Hobbs & Lonergan Win Princeton Moot Court Tourney -- BHSMC's Third Straight Victory!!! What an incredible year -- one of the best ever in BHS MC history!
We did it again, and again. At Princeton's largest moot court tourney yet (65 teams), Nicole Hobbs and Keah Lonergan edged out Bhsmc peers Caitlin ONeill and Delaram Takyar in another Branford dominated finals (ONeill and Takyar defeated Lonergan and Esposito in the October). After three rounds on Friday afternoon and evening, and one Saturday morning, 16 teams were chosen for the tournament in the afternoon, 3 that were Bhsmc -- Hobbs & Lonergan, ONeill & Takyar, Shavrova & Flynn. All three teams made it past the first round with the quarters seeing Team ONeill vs Team Shavrova going head to head in an engaging exchange, and ONeill & Takyar coming out on top. The finals saw for the second consecutive time two bhsmc teams battle it out in civil manner for tourney champs, with a panel of 9 Princeton judges questioning the teams throughout their 20 minute arguments (see photos). Congratulations once again to Hobbs & Lonergan and all 7 bhsmc teams for their outstanding and inspiring performances. Finally, congrats to individual gavel winners Caitlin ONeill and Kseniya Shavrova for being outstanding attorneys. What a way to begin and end a historic year in BHSMC
