A Message from Ms. Fergusson:
Our Mock Trial team will be competing at the South City Courthouse on Tuesday night, Feb. 3.
Prosecution will be competing at 5:30 (against Mills, Half Moon Bay, and Jefferson) and Defense at 7:30 (against El Camino, South City, and Oceana) on those nights. Everyone is welcome to come watch these events. The courthouse is at 1050 Mission Street in South San Francisco. Once inside, look for the courtrooms where Team "B" is competing. That's us. 

We'll keep you posted if we progress to the semi-finals, where we'd compete in Redwood City against South County's top teams (usually Menlo and Hillsdale) for the right to go on to the state competition. Last year, Menlo won the state and went on to the nationals, where they came in 4th place, which was a pretty great honor for San Mateo County.

Go Mock Trial!
