UF Trial Team makes it to Sweet Sixteen, 2012UF Trial Team members Georgia Buckhalter (3L), Marissa Faerber (3L), Andrea Nieto (3L) and Kimberly Stewart (3L), led by coaches Tom Farkash (JD 76) and Dan Hogan (JD 11), competed March 29 through April 1 in the Inaugural South Texas Mock Trial Competition. After four rounds of competition, the UF team broke out of the pool of 40 teams to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. In the Sweet Sixteen, Faerber and Nieto competed as the plaintiffs against a team from Northern Kentucky. The UF team narrowly fell in what one judge described as “a coin toss” decision. Congratulations to the team for their achievements. From left: Nieto, Stewart, Buckhalter and Faerber.
