The Sitka High Mock Trial team took second-place in the statewide Mock Trial competition in Anchorage last weekend, falling to giant West Anchorage High. Coach Howard Wayne says his team — which has three foreign exchange students — won verdicts in nearly every trial. The state Mock Trial competition is hosted by the Alaska Bar Association. Judges in the preliminary rounds are attorneys; in the finals, teams argue before Supreme Court justices! The SHS 2013-2014 team members are
