The team didn't do as well as they'd hoped--thirty-seventh out of forty-six state champions competing--but two students, Avery Farmer and Eve Kausch, won best witness and best attorney awards.

The kids seemed fine with that. At a meeting the week after they returned, they were already strategizing for the 2015 competition.    (end of article)
