Posted by Community Relations Department at 4/17/2013

Last month, South Mountain’s seven-student Mock Trial team, after winning Regionals, competed against the top 16 teams in the Arizona State Mock Trial Championships, March 23.   South’s team competed in the four-round tournament, losing a close split decision in the last round allowing their opponent, University High from Tucson, to advance to the 3rd place match.  While rankings are not posted beyond the final four, a win in their final match would have allowed them to advance to the final two matches.  Alexis Carter was named to the All-State Team and received one of the three scholarships given to the top three competitors in the entire state. It was South’s first State competition since 1995.
