On October 17th, MMT travelled to Denver, Colorado for the annual Providence Cup and returned with the first place trophy! It was Menlo’s 8th year at the tournament and 6th victory.
The Providence pre-season tournament gives students an opportunity to argue historical cases. This year, the case was modeled off of the infamous Lindenberg baby kidnapping of the 1930s. Eight experienced Menlo Mock Trial members, all of whom travelled to Georgia for the National Championship in May last season, performed at Providence.
MMT played teams from across the country over the weekend. After two rounds on Friday and two rounds on Saturday, Menlo was announced as one of the finalists on Saturday evening. After a challenging final round against a team from Colorado, Menlo ultimately left victorious.
Now MMT is preparing the case of People vs. Bailey Matsumoto for the first trip of the main season to Sacramento.
