King's Mock Trial teams make big wins at state competition

King's High School, Shoreline


The 2018 – 2019 King’s Mock Trial season starts with the Bulldog competition at Yale University where King’s two summer teams took on mock trial teams from around the country. Team White captured 4th place with senior, Wesley Bahng being named Best Witness. 

The season continued with a big change as our three school teams moved from an eight year tradition of district competition in Snohomish County to our inaugural showing at the newly established Kitsap County, Washington YMCA Youth and Government district competition. 

For the first time ever, King’s top two teams took both 1st and 2nd place at this event. 

Confirming the top tier competitive level at this district event, all teams advancing from the Kitsap County competition to the Washington YMCA Youth and Government state competition placed in the top 10 following the final rounds of trials in Olympia this past weekend. 

Our teams, comprised of freshmen through seniors, compete against schools from all classifications making this an extraordinary feat, especially in light of the bulk of the team being sophomores. Team members include the following students.
