Our View: St. Charles North students star at mock trial state championships

Unlike those who participate in athletics, students who take part in academic-based competitions don’t often get to experience the thrill of performing in front of hundreds, or even thousands, of people cheering in support of their endeavors.

That doesn’t make the feats less significant. The St. Charles North Mock Trial Team won its first title in school history earlier this month, in an event at the University of Illinois College of Law in Champaign.

These are teens using real-world skills, with team members trying both sides of a hypothetical case. Such a competition takes hours of preparation, with participants working with attorney Patrick Crimmins of the Brady and Jensen law firm.

The students’ success is worth applauding, and we wish them success in May as they represent Illinois at the National High School Mock Trial Championship.
