The RLS mock trial team recently wrapped up its fourth year, which was a success despite the challenges the team members faced due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Monterey County’s annual competition among local high schools, sponsored by Lyceum Monterey County, had to be held via Zoom since the Monterey County courthouse remains closed. Our team finished the tournament with a 2-2 record. John Hubanks, Senior Deputy District Attorney of Monterey County and one of the team’s legal advisors, explains “The team’s split record is a bit misleading, since both losses were extremely close contests against tough opponents: Pacific Grove High School and Palma High School.”
