Congratulations to the 2010 Sports Law Moot Court Team!

Our Sports Law Moot Court Team, consisting of Jennifer Ward and Whitney True, competed this past week in New Orleans in the 16th Annual Mardi Gras Sports Law Moot Court competition hosted by Tulane School of Law.  There were 40 teams in the competition and many fierce competitors.  Although the team faced severe weather conditions and nearly missed the competition, the team conquered adversity and faired well in their efforts in the 2010 Sports Law Moot Court Competition.

The team was narrowly defeated by the UConn team in Round 1 and lost another coin toss to LSU in Round 2.  Both rounds were very close.   The team prevailed in Round 3 and defeated the team from Albany by a significant margin -- but despite their fairly large point differential from Round 3, the team was unable to advance.

Professor Moorman, the team's coach, was very pleased with the team's preparation and how well Jennifer and Whitney adjusted their arguments and oratory presentation as the competition progressed.  Both Jennifer Ward and Whitney True received positive remarks for their oral arguments and advocacy.  Most impressively, the team remained consistent despite nearly missing the competition all together.  Congratulations to our 2010 Sports Law Moot Court Team!
