Cumberland Wins National Trial Competition - Region 6

Posted: Tue, 02/16/2010 - 14:47

Ashley Reitz, Joshua Hornady and Robert Price won the National Trial Competition Regional held in Jackson, Mississippi this weekend.  The team went 5-0 by winning 12 of 15 judges and was the only undefeated school in the tournament.  On their way to the Regional Championship, they defeated teams from Barry School of Law, Florida State University, Stetson University, the University of Alabama and Mississippi College School of Law.


Although our other team of Ross Massey, Carrie Hodge and Alyson Hood did not win, these three 2Ls have a very bright future.  Other National Trial Team members that worked with these teams are Bethany Harrison and Matthew Hill.  Thank you to all the judges and attorneys who also helped to prepared these teams.

The team is coached by Jim Roberts ’94 and Sara Williams ‘06.  They will compete in the National Finals in Dallas, Texas, March 24-27, 2010.
