The Crosby High School LifeSmarts team will be representing the state of Connecticut at the National LifeSmarts competition in Pittsburgh the week of April 20th to the 24th. The Crosby students have won the state championship before, with coach Donna Mancuso winning Coach of the Year honors last year.
The Crosby High School Mock Trial Team made it to the semi-finals and lost by one point to Trumbull who ended up being the state champion. The students displayed great professionalism and knowledge of their assigned case. Coach Donna Mancuso learned that Trumbull High has Mock Trial as a 45 minute class every day whereas the Crosby students practice only one night a week and occasional Sundays at my attorney's office. My Vice Principal actually had to take the team to the last two trials as I was in Washington on another program. She was impressed by what she saw as well.
