The Conway High School Mock Trial team is now the State Champions after winning the Arkansas Mock Trial State Tournament.
"We have been working since October for the Mock Trial Championship," says sponsor Casey Griffith. "We competed in regional competition in Jonesboro at the beginning of March, where we qualified for the state tournament."
Their victory means they will represent Arkansas at the National High School Mock Trial Tournament in Athens, Georgia this May.
Team members are:
Sidnie Thompson, Attorney
Kelli King, Witness
Brett Thompson, Witness
Lawson Points, Witness
Chloe Solis, Attorney
Maddie Meek, Timekeeper/Understudy
Jayce Pollard, Attorney
Their volunteer attorney coach is Matt Brown.
The team will now begin working on their case for the National tournament.
"We will commit all of our extra time to preparing this case... We are thrilled and look forward to representing Conway High School and the state of Arkansas on Conway High in Georgia!"
