Juniata College's Mock Trial A Team

HUNTINGDON, Pa. — For the sixth consecutive year, and every year that the Team has been in existence, Juniata College will advance to the Opening Round of the Mock Trial National Championship Series.  

This marks the second consecutive year that Juniata will send both of its teams, A and B, to Nationals.  

Coach David Andrews ’74 noted, “The fact that both of our teams have advanced to the Nationals for the second consecutive year speaks to the strength of our overall program for Mock Trial.” 

Both teams competed in the American Mock Trial Association (AMTA) Regional Tournament at Penn State University last weekend, with Dan Cummins ’24, Bryce Garland ’27, and Shea Langille ’25, winning All-Region Attorney awards and Rich Wei ’26 winning an All-Region Witness award.  

“Our team members exemplify the fact that hard work and preparation obtain results in academic competitions,” added Andrews.  

Six teams of the 22 competing at the Regional Competition progress to the National Championship's Opening Round. Joining Juniata College’s A and B teams are the two teams from Georgetown University, Dickinson College A, and University of Rochester A.  

This year’s Opening Round of the National Championship playoffs will be hosted by Xavier University and the University of Cincinnati, held at the University of Cincinnati in Cincinnati, Ohio, March 15-17, 2024. 

A total of over 700 teams entered the National Tournament at the start, with playoff competitions taking place throughout the United States. Following the Opening Round of the National Championship, the remaining 48 teams will face off at the National Championships in Chicago, Illinois, April 19-21, 2024.
