The Los Angeles County champion Mock Trial team is gearing up for the state competition rounds starting on March 18.

Led by coaches Alan Croll and Bobbie Kumetz and faculty adviser Dave Waterhouse, the prosecution and defense led the team to a first place finish in the Los Angeles Mock Trial Final Nov. 24, culminating in a win versus last year’s champion, Peninsula High School.

“We are very excited and nervous about it, since Mock Trial hasn’t made it this far in a while,” Megan Cohen ’17 said. “Mentally, we’ve never stopped preparing, because we’ve recently been in county.”
