Carmel High mock trial team placed 8th in state championship

For the second year in a row,  Carmel High mock trial team earned a spot at the state level, earning 8th place overall during the 35th annual California Mock Trial Finals held March 18-20 in Sacramento.

At the Califonia Mock Trial Finals, the winning teams from 34 counties presented People v. Hayes, a criminal case involving murder and a pre-trial argument on the Fifth Amendment.

Carmel's pretrial attorney, Alex Poletti, won the J. Skelly Wright award for excellence in pre-trial advocacy on the prosecution.

Carmel's team has been doing great since their coach, government and politics teacher Bill Schrier, sign them up for the Empire mock trial competition two years ago. Congratulations, team!
