All three Colorado Academy Mock Trial teams delivered commanding performances at the Denver Regional Tournament this past weekend, where A and B teams swept the tournament. Both will represent CA at the State Tournament in Golden on March 13 and 14.
Colorado Academy’s A team won all four rounds, earning well-deserved praise from judges and coaches. In the fourth and final round, B and C teams squared off for second place in a tense match that tested their outstanding talents.
After the winners were announced, Coach Andres Guevara noted, “I have never seen students as excited and energized as this year’s group. I could not be more proud of their accomplishments.”
As in years past, CA students earned special recognition for their individual performances.
Best Attorney award recipients: Senior Kayleigh Milligan (second year in a row), Junior Czarina Yuffa, and Sophomore Bo Turnage.
Best Witness ward recipients: Seniors Avery Lin and Patrick Schmid (both second year in a row), Junior Chloe Brants, and Sophomore Abigail Shapiro.
Special thanks go out to our six mock trial coaches, without whom we do not have a program: Mark Grueskin, Maribeth Younger, Doug Beck, Andres Guevara, Elizabeth Wylie, and Michael MacPhail.
Congratulations to all participants on their impressive performances!
