Congratulations to the Emmaus High School Mock Trial team. On March 12, the EHS-Gold Team, for the first time in school history, competed in our district finals! Starting in mid-October these dedicated students spent two-to-three afternoons a week prepping and practicing their case. After four rounds of competition- performing in front of Lehigh Valley lawyers and judges- we were one of the last two schools standing.
We are proud to say that EHS happened to also be one of only two schools in our three-county district to send two full teams to this highly competitive and challenging competition.

The EHS Mock Trial team would also like to thank…
- Our three attorney advisors (all of whom are also Emmaus High School parents): Steve Zakos, David Ritter and Christie Bonesch. They gave up countless hours during their busy workdays to help answer questions regarding fact patterns, case law, case prep, and procedural issues likes directing and crossing witnesses, objecting and writing opening and closing statements. We are grateful to have their guidance, knowledge and support throughout each and every Mock Trial season!
- The EHS administrative team for their support and interest throughout the season.
- The EHS Athletic/Activity office for their hard work and willingness to put up with my countless questions and endless paperwork!
