Mock Trial competes at state

Portsmouth West High School Mock Trial Team competed Thursday, March 8, at the state competition held at the Franklin County Courthouse. The team performed well but fell short in its efforts to make it to the national competition. The prosecution side won its match against Logan. The defense tied West Jefferson and, then, lost by one point. West placed in the top 18 teams in the state this year and had five trial wins overall and 10 outstanding awards. Sophomore Whitney Campbell received Best Attorney award at state, and senior Jordan Willis won Best Witness.
