The CHS Mock Trial Team won the Kern County Championships on Saturday. The CHS defense team defeated West in the morning. West finished in 3rd place in the county. The CHS prosecution team defeated Stockdale in the afternoon for the title. Stockdale finished in 2nd place. This was the fourth county win in the last five years for the Golden Hawks. Stockdale had won fifteen of sixteen years before CHS won in 2013. Our JV team was able to conduct two scrimmages on Saturday as well, but scores were not tallied.
The CHS team is very young. Of the seven attorneys on the team we have three freshmen, one sophomore, two juniors, and one senior. Each team has two students recognized for the Kern County “Honor Court.” Hope Wearing and Hirsa Sarafian were Centennial’s two representatives.
The team will now prepare (and fundraise) for the trip to the state tournament in Riverside March 24-26. Last year the team took 4th place, but the team lost ten seniors last year.
