Redefining Excellence in Mock Trial: Gibbons Shines at Sunshine State Showdown!
Kristin Hanke

In an exhilarating showdown this past weekend, the Gibbons Mock Trial team descended upon Florida State University to compete in the highly anticipated Sunshine State Showdown. This prestigious event brought together a total of 16 outstanding programs from both Florida and Georgia, setting the stage for an intense battle of legal acumen and courtroom drama.

But what truly set this competition apart was the remarkable achievement of two of our very own team members. We're thrilled to announce that Kaley Bevilacqua was awarded the title of "Best Attorney," while Sebastian Leacher dazzled as the "Best Witness." Their exceptional performances were nothing short of spectacular and marked a historic moment for Gibbons Mock Trial.

For the first time in our team's history, we emerged victorious in both individual categories at a major competition. This remarkable feat is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and talent that our team members bring to the table. Kaley and Sebastian's exceptional skills not only reflect their personal dedication but also the unwavering support and mentorship of our entire team.

As we celebrate this momentous achievement, we invite all members of the Gibbons community to join us in congratulating Kaley and Sebastian on their outstanding accomplishments. If you happen to spot them on campus, be sure to extend your warmest wishes and commendations.

The Sunshine State Showdown was an unforgettable experience, and our team's triumph in the individual awards category has set a new standard for Gibbons Mock Trial. We're excited to continue our journey, honing our legal prowess, and striving for excellence in every competition we partake in. Stay tuned for more updates on our thrilling mock trial adventures, and thank you for your unwavering support!
