GAC Mock Trial Team
For the first time in school history, the Greater Atlanta Christian School Mock Trial team won the Region 9 Champion at the Lawrenceville ‪Region Mock Trial Competition on Friday, Jan. 31 and Saturday, Feb. 1. GAC defeated Duluth High School in a very close match in the final round of the competition.  The Spartans will advance to the District Mock Trial Competition to be held Saturday, February 22. 

There were several individual award winners.  Katy Davis won BEST WITNESS in all three of her rounds.  No GAC student has ever done that!  Maggie Clark also won BEST WITNESS in her two preliminary rounds!  Student Attorney, Kyle Briskin, won BEST ATTORNEY in both of his preliminary rounds.  Harrisen Schneider also won a BEST ATTORNEY in one of his preliminary rounds.  With the assistance of the entire team, this is the largest number of individual awards ever won by a GAC team.

Team members include Harrisen Schneider, Jessica Pickens, Alexa Johnson, Matthew Bowling, Maggie Clark, Mac Sullivan, Liam Sullivan, Laura Tate, Meredith Mahaffey, Maddie Conkel, Kyle Briskin, David Mathew, Katy Davis, Laura Fazekas, Paula Cuadrado, Mike Keeton, Joey Schrader, Josh Pickens and Jonathan Pickens.

This victory would not have been possible without our superb adult attorney coaches:  Mr. Alan Briskin, Mr. Steve Pickens, Mr. Chuck Efstration, Ms. Pareesa Amjadi, and our head attorney coach, Judge Kathy Schrader.
