On Saturday, April 7, Warwick defeated Chester in Round 1 and Valley Central in Round 2. The Single Eliminations and Semi Finals will be held Saturday, April 14, at the Orange Ulster BOCES Emanuel Axelrod Education Center in Goshen.

The Mock Trial program, coordinated by Orange-Ulster BOCES, is sponsored by the New York State Bar Association. Each year, teams from a number of Orange County high schools are given the opportunity to analyze and interpret a trial prepared by the NYSBA and to present their interpretation in a courtroom before a county judge. To prepare for the tournament, each school has a teacher-coach as well as a local attorney working with them to help them with the nuances of the courtroom and presentation skills.
The winner of the county tournament goes on to regionals with the possibility of going to the state tournament.
