In the Hyatt Hotel, 12 schools battle it out for the five spots to go to the Mock Trial State competition.

“Since August, we’ve been working on mock trial, but we’ve been working on the case since it came out in December,” Sadie Bodzin ‘25 said.

The regional Mock Trial competition started early in the morning at 8:30 and the results came out at 6:00. Out of the five spots to go to State, four of those teams were City High teams, with the Sophomore team, Team Triple ThreaTTT, placing second in the region.

“It’s my first time qualifying for State and I’m really excited,” Bodzin said. “It’s definitely going to be more stressful than regionals. We’ll go against really good teams and it will just be more work.”
