Westview High School in Torrey Highlands has won the San Diego County High School Mock Trial Competition and will represent San Diego County in the statewide Mock Trial competition, it was announced Monday.

The school’s Mock Trial team won out over 31 other county schools amid a record 600-plus students participating in the 16th annual event at the San Diego Central Courthouse.

This year’s event also included participation from 261 attorneys, who served as coaches or scorers. Fifty-seven judges also presided over the hypothetical cases, with U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw presiding over the championship round.

Westview’s team is set to take part in the 2022 statewide competition later this month. It will be held virtually.
