  • Mock Trial Team Advances to Regionals

    Debate 4This past weekend our BHS Mock Trial Team traveled to Valley Mills High School for a Mock Trial Scrimmage on Friday; and then on Saturday, traveled to the Downtown Fort Worth Tarrant County Courthouse to compete in their very 1st Criminal Mock Trial in front of real judges and attorneys that work out of the DFW area. Thousands of high school students from across the state participate each year in this challenging academic event. It was a very long and trying day with 15 teams from surrounding schools competing both on the State side and for the Defense. Our BHS Debate/Mock Trial Team consists of 4 students who act as lawyers, 6 who act as witnesses, and 2 timekeepers (with some students playing 2 different roles). Being our first year to ever participate in a Mock Trial Competition, the BHS Team did exceptionally well! There were 15 teams total in this first Regional Competition with only 4 teams advancing to the Semi-Finals. Your BHS Mock Trial Team WAS one of the 4 teams that did advance and will have the opportunity to compete again this Friday at the Tarrant County Courthouse. Only 1 of these 4 teams will get the chance to move on and compete at the state level. Please wish our competitors luck as they move on in this highly motivating, energetic, and challenging academic competition! They have a very difficult case, but are representing BHS proudly!

  • Swim Results

    Saturday, the BHS swim team competed at the Cowtown Shootout. The meet is called a Shootout because there is a tournament-like competition throughout the day swimming the 50 free. Every competitor begins (and there were 136), but only the top 16 move on. After the top 16 swim for a second time, the top eight move on. This continues until the final two are left. We had three girls make it to the top 16: Kelly Center, Amelia Flug, and Aaliyah Young. We had one boy in the top 16 – James Miller. After the top 16 swam, Aaliyah and James qualified to move to the top 8. Aaliyah advanced to the top four, and the the final shootout, where she swam against a swimmer from Mansfield. She finished in second place out of 108 other girls. James finished in 7th place, beating out 135 other competitors.

    While the 50 free was being spaced out, the other events comprised the Pentathlon – a 100 IM, then a 50 each of the breast stroke, back stroke, fly, and the original freestyle. Six of our 8 girls competed in all five events and finished in the following places: Amelia Flug – 8th; Aaliyah Young – 11th; Tiffany Graham – 19th; Abigail Brown – 32nd; Vegas Jankowski – 40th; and Abby Gillis – 58th.

    The boys finished the Pentathlon as follows: James Miller – 10th; Payton Brown – 14th; Colton Page – 36th; Isa Galoob – 37th; and Nathan Melia – 41st.

    The team as a whole finished in third place, outscoring 13 other teams, including the one across town. Aaliyah Young set a new school record in the 50 free with her time of 25.82. All in all, it was a pretty great day at the pool. Next stop is District. Wish them all well.
