Members of a high school mock trial team are on their way back to Georgia after being stranded in New York City during Hurricane Sandy.

Members of the Jonesboro High School team were expected to arrive back home sometime Thursday morning.

One of the judges, Clayton County State Court Solicitor General Tasha Mosley, tells 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 placed fourth in an international competition in New York this weekend. They were stranded in a Brooklyn hotel for much of this week.
