Carmel mock trial team places 6th in California tournament

Speaking of remarkable guys and gals, the team members of the Carmel High mock trial team placed 6th in California's tournament, competing against 33 other teams from all over the state.

The tournament took place Sunday in Riverside. 

"It's actually a much bigger deal than Empire because every team at state is already a champion," wrote the team's coach, government and politics teacher Bill Schrier. If you've read my previous stories and posts, you'll remember that Schrier credits "Empire" a prestigious, invitation-only mock trial tournament, with giving Carmel the edge. The team prepared over the summer to compete in Empire in the fall, which Schrier help them better prepare for the countywide competition.

And the statewide.

 "California is widely recognized as he best state for mock trial in the country,"  Schrier said.

California Mock Trial officials "award medals to the top 8 teams. We came in 6th, and that hasn't ever happened to a team from Monterey County," he wrote!

Way to go, team. You make Monterey County proud!
