By Northern Star Staff

The Mock Trial Team placed fifth out of 14 teams at the St. Francis University Midwest Invitational Mock Trial Competition over the weekend.

In addition to the team’s fifth-place finish, Joel Heilman was awarded an outstanding attorney award and Mike McCarthy took home an outstanding witness award.

There will be a tournament Saturday in Elmhurst, and the regional Tournament will be held in February. If NIU places at regionals the team could earn a bid to nationals.
