The Sage Ridge Mock Trial team is state-bound after a successful showing at the Northern Nevada Regional Competition.

The state competition is to be held virtually from February 25-26.

At the regional competition, held virtually from February 11-12, Lillian Ferrell shared recognition for Outstanding Attorney. Lilli De Jonghe won Outstanding Witness. Sage Ridge came in fourth place overall.

The trial was a civil case over a death caused by a sudden lightning strike at a concert. The Mock Trial team prepared plaintiff and defense sides to deliver opening and closing statements as well as face direct and cross examinations.

Local judges and attorneys oversaw and scored each trial. Overall competition results may be viewed at the State Bar of Nevada website.
