Well Pleased With The Performance

Tonight was the first round of competition for the mock trial team. The kids were all right. There are three seniors on the team who are really good; they’re convincing, confident, and canny. The younger students, who gave me a bit of a scare at our last training session, came through very nicely. We had a historically weak team against us tonight that, to their great credit, put on a pretty decent show, so that was nice to see, too — but mainly, I’m proud of the kids on my team; they did great. Next week, it’s our rematch against the defending champions.
