Mock Trial Team Scores Big Win

Island School won their first trial yesterday at the Kaua‘i District Mock Trial. The score was 95 to Kapa‘aʻs 85. Ming Hsu earned the Best Attorney award and Ziko Quintana earned the award for Best Witness. They go up against Kapa‘a again next Tuesday. The team that wins the best of three will go to the State Mock Trial competition in March. Way to go, Island School!

Many thanks and kudos to Attorney Michael Ratcliffe and Lauren Calhoun, who have been working with these students for since last fall.
