Congrats to NALSA and Civil Rights Competition Teams

February 26, 2013 | By Professor Connie Smothermon, Competitions Director

Congratulations to the NALSA and Civil Rights teams for doing an outstanding job representing OU this past weekend.  

The NALSA team competed in Portland, Oregon.  Maryanne Mohan and Sage Garland advanced to the second elimination round and finished 6th in the tournament out of a field of over 60 teams.  They won two of three ballots in the Elite 8 round, but lost on points to advance to the Final 4. Congrats to coach Taiawagi Helton, assisted by Casey Delaney, for their outstanding work with the team.  Our team’s understanding of the law was superb!    

The Civil Rights teams competed in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The team of Carrie Phillips, Ashley Moore and Emily Semands won second place best brief out of a field of 35 teams.  The team also advanced to the Elite 8 round, and Ashley Moore was awarded a honorable mention speaker award. The team of Shane Hill, Melissa Harman and Geoffrey Storm won tenth place with their brief. Congrats to coach Elizabeth Bangs (who did not travel with the team, but did have a baby Thursday!) and attorney Jenny Fischer who is always willing to judge/coach.     

Thank you to everyone who helped with these teams!
