Camarillo High School has won the Ventura County Mock Trial, ending La Reina High School’s five-year winning streak.
Grace Brethren High School, a private Christian school in Simi Valley, placed second.
The winners were announced Monday night in a ceremony at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center.
In mock trial, students play the roles of all key figures in a hypothetical trial, including attorneys for the defense and prosecution, witnesses and the bailiff. This year, 32 teams competed countywide.
Camarillo High now advances to the state mock trial competition March 18-20 in Sacramento.
