This championship win signals a sustained level of success in Trinity School’s mock trial program, whose teams have now brought home the state championship title for two years in a row.

Trinity’s two 2024 teams Legal Dose and Revelance (spelling intentional) distinguished themselves earlier this season by placing first and second at the South Bend Regional Mock Trial competition held in February. This qualified both teams to travel to the state level competition, which is hosted by the Indiana Bar Foundation and held at the Marion County Community Justice Campus in Indianapolis.

Legal Dose placed first after competing in multiple rounds of trials on Saturday and Sunday. A total of 25 teams from 14 high schools across Indiana competed for the state title. Trinity students competed against teams from much larger schools, including South Bend’s John Adams High School and Carmel High School.

Thank you to all of our amazing coaches, faculty, and parent volunteers for making this possible!
