JONESBORO — Members of a Georgia high-school mock trial team who were stranded in New York City during Hurricane Sandy have made it home.

Members of the Jonesboro High School team arrived home around 9:30 a.m. Thursday. They were greeted by parents, who brought signs and flowers.

One of the judges, Clayton County State Court Solicitor General Tasha Mosley, told the Clayton News Daily that the school system approved chartering a bus for the return trip after the group could not find a flight due to the storm.

The team, which placed fourth in an international competition in New York this weekend, was stranded in a Brooklyn hotel for much of this week.
