Mock Trial Team

2015-2016 Mock Trial Team
Hello Citrus Hill Staff,

On Saturday our school’s mock trial team ended their season with a resounding victory, defeating Temecula Valley High School and ending with a 3-1 record. Although this record put us in the running to move onto the playoffs, we unfortunately finished outside the top 8. I am very fortunate to have had such a great group of students in my inaugural season as teacher coach. If you see any of the following students please give them a high five or, at the very least, a nod of the head:

Dana Rodriguez
Armani Baktyary
Maninder Manan
Sarah Picazo
Alondra Trujillo
Crystal Castro
Anyela Guzman
Uriel Guzman
Shayla Leon
Ben Falck
Isabel Molina
Julian Adame
Katherine Lopez
Anthony Chavarin

Furthermore Dana Rodriguez won first place honors for her portrayal of character witness Alex Rosales and Alondra Trujillo won third for her portrayal of handwriting expert Gale Green!

It’s with great pride that I report that the mock trial team won its fourth round and our record is now 3-1. We advanced to the next round and we will be competing against the powerhouse Martin Luther King high school this Wednesday at 6 p.m. In the Riverside County Courthouse:  THE BATTLE OF WOOD ROAD, II!!!!   We made school history on Saturday by defeating, Centennial High School RED team to advance to the Elite Eight for the first time. 


We continued our tradition of excellence Saturday when the following three students received Blue Ribbon Awards representing outstanding performances in a role:

Sarah Picazo:   Bronze medal for her portrayal of Art Expert Jamie Sardegna

Armani Baktyary:   Silver Medal for his portrayal of Dr. Marty McCulloch, wealthy art collector and Art History Professor

Adriana Ramos:  Gold Medal for being the best Court Room Clerk out of twenty-eight schools; some coming from as far as Blythe.


This is the third consecutive year that our Mock Trial team has won top honors in this competition, and the  most ever won in a single competition We  have won six total Riverside County Awards Blue Ribbon awards to date, and three of them are first place. 


Thank you for your support.  Please congratulation the entire team for a job well done.
