The Sonoma Valley High School Mock Trial team, undefeated in the Napa and Mendocino County competitions for the past six years, will participate in the California High School Mock Trial State Championships March 21 to 23 in San Jose, thanks to a generous donation from the Sonoma Rotary Club. Last year the Sonoma team finished as medal winners – eighth in the state. The team has many returning members and eight graduating seniors, and they hope to surpass last year’s achievement. Pictured above is the high school’s successful Mock Trial Team in the classroom where they practice.
