Last night at the Ventura County Office of Education, Trinity Pacific Christian School was announced as the county champion of both the middle school AND high school mock trial competitions! Additionally, the Trinity Junior Varsity team came in 5th out of 25 high school teams from public and private schools in the county.
In addition to the team victory, Trinity students earned a myriad of individual awards (see complete list below).
While there is no move-on tournament for middle school, they do have the opportunity to participate in another tournament next month. The varsity team will begin preparing this week for the California state championship, which will take place in Los Angeles the weekend of March 17.
Congratulations to everyone who participated! And huge thanks to those who put in so much time, energy, and love to make it possible.
