Congratulations to Eric Houck, finishing second in the NY State Cross Country Skiing Championships held in Lake Placid earlier this week. Eric took second in the 10km skate race on Monday, and on Tuesday in the classic relay he had the fastest split time although his section 3 team came in 5th. Fantastic job, Eric! Eric will be competing in Junior Nationals March 6-13th in northern Wisconsin.
Congrats as well to Nottingham’s Mock Trial team, which defeated Tully Thursday in the first round of the Onondaga County Bar Association Mock Trial tournament. This season’s case is a suppression hearing about whether evidence found in a drug case can be used in the upcoming trial. In the first round, Nottingham was the prosecution, and Julian Valendia, Janet Nguyen and Patrick McCarthy were lawyers. The witnesses were Lauren Shatraw, James Erdman and Orla Kelly. Next week Nottingham will be the defense and compete against Cortland.
