On January 17, Lake Ridge Upper School students competed in the 37th annual Mock Trial Competition at Elyria Municipal Court. This event was the district level of this competition, and Lake Ridge sent 3 teams to compete. Students had practiced outside of school for the past 4 months leading to the competition, and competed against North Olmsted High School, Open Door, and each other! Two teams are advancing to regionals (blue and purple), with our freshman green team being eliminated by our own blue team. Regionals will be held on Feb. 7.

Congratulations to all including our award winners: P.J. Yoo '20 (2 Best Attorney Awards-For Plaintiff and Defense), Aashna Lakkaraju '22 (Best Attorney for Defense), Oliver Lagasse '20 (Best Witness for Defense), Joel Lacoste '22 (Best Attorney for Plaintiff), Alex Sandhu '22 (Best Witness for Plaintiff).
