CHS Mock Trial Team Prevails

The Camas High School Mock Trial team set a new personal best for themselves over spring break at the YMCA Mock Trial Competition. They claimed first place in Clark County while beating worthy opponent Ft. Vancouver High School for the very first time. The competition placed Camas ranked fourth in among public schools in the state and ninth overall.

“Camas has never made it into the top 10 at state,” commented coach Jackie Hofer. “And they are bound and determined to be in the top 5 next year!”

Camas had a bevy of accolades including nominations of seven out of eight witnesses for Best Witness—more than any other team at state. Additionally, three of five attorneys were nominated for Best Attorney.

“The kids were amazing and considering two-thirds have never participated in the program before… well, we were proud!” Hofer added.

The trip was smooth, the kids were great. Thank you all for your support along the way. Those Camas kiddos really are impressive!
