District Competition Results
The mock trial team competed at district on the 18th and made it to the semi-finals (district is a single-elimination tournament) before losing 2-4 to Cherokee. To give you some idea of how close the ballots were that round, we were 7 points away from winning outright (out of 520 points scored). While the team results were not what we had hoped for going into the tournament, they were fantastic given that this was the 1st year doing the activity for 2/3 of the students involved and all of the students other than Alondra will be back next year.
Several students also received individual awards. Eveleen Paez was selected as the best witness in both her quarterfinal and semifinal rounds. Miguel Mares and Alex Garcia both received a best attorney award for their quarterfinal rounds, and Jazmin Ortiz received a best attorney for her semifinal round.
