Cajon High School advances to the California Mock Trial Finals

The Cajon High School Cowboys took first place in the 39th Annual San Bernardino County Mock Trial finals. Cajon now advances to the California Mock Trial Finals scheduled for March 18–21, 2021.

“Mock Trial was an adventure that turned into a joy ride of growth and camaraderie,” said head coach Robert Grande. “The students did this for the City of San Bernardino, the local community, and most importantly for Cajon High School.”

Cajon High School was just one team in a field of 26 that participated in this year’s virtual Mock Trial competition. Each participating school prepared a prosecution and defense team to try this year’s case. The case, People v. Croddy, involved alleged aiding and abetting. A courtroom judge presides over each match, and teams are scored on several factors, not just winning or losing the case.

“We are excited for another opportunity to participate in the state Mock Trial competition. It is a great honor because we know we have competed against several phenomenal teams, such as Los Osos,” said Cajon Principal Teenya Bishop. “Our hopes are that we can continue to represent our school, District, and county well.”

This is the second time in the school’s history that it has earned the County Mock Trial Championship.

The San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools and the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s office co-sponsor the event.
