Congratulations to our DBHS Mock Trial team!

This Friday, our Mock Trial team found out via zoom that we WON our 1st round competition!! Now we compete in the top 16 round (out of 92 teams that started the competition) on Tuesday, November 16! If we win, we'll be competing Thursday in the top 8.

Like last year, the mock trial competitions are virtual and our "court-room arguers" are skilled at delivering convincing objections and witty redirects that make the judge rule in our favor! Click HERE for details about the competition!

Special thanks to our Mock Trial advisors Mrs. Latitia Thomas, Margaret Ku, and Ken Carlson for preparing our students and making the competitions possible!

Go Brahmas!
