Mock trial team at state

Congrats to the Mock Trial team who competed in the state competition. The Region 10 champions traveled to Duluth for the the event which was held at the St. Louis County Courthouse.

Mock Trial is sponsored by the Minnesota State Bar Association. Every team in the state is given the same case each year, which is based on a real court case. This year, it was a defamation case. In Mock Trial, the students need to prepare a case for both the plaintiff side and the defendant side so most students have two roles. When going up against another school, one team will be the defendant and one will be the plaintiff.

Congrats to Keenan Walker who was named top team lawyer and Mia Pariseau who was named top team witness by the state judges.

The team is made up of Jolie Anderson, Torianna Eckles, Michaela Engebretsen, Carina Engler, Caitlyn Garrity, Paige Hendry, Emma Lehmann, Michael O'Gorman, Mia Pariseau, Alexandra Snow, and Keenan Walker.
