Chase Trial Team

Both Chase trial teams in the regional National Trial Competition this past weekend in Knoxville, Tenn., advanced to the semifinal round. To get there, each dominated preliminary rounds with teams from Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Missouri. One Chase team was composed of Michael Bromell, Tory Finley (Michael is questioning Tory in the photo from a practice) and Alex McKenzie, and one team was Molly Bramble, Demi Messer and Tanner Duncan. The teams received a lot of praise from judges and observers for preparation and professionalism, faculty coordinator Professor Jack Harrison says. In addition to Professor Harrison, the teams had coaching from adjunct professors Zac Anderson, Melissa Bodner, Ken Foisy, Mark Gerano, Ian Mitchell, Tim Spille, Carrie Masters Starts, Jesse Taylor and Del Weldon.
