Four days and eight rounds of regional competition spread across two cities produced the maximum number of national tournament bids that can be earned by any school for the USC Mock Trial Team. Four squads laden with primarily freshmen and sophomores competed in Fresno, CA and Rancho Cucamonga, CA and returned with coveted bids to the Amertican Mock Trial Association's national tournament opening rounds. Best squad records were 7-1 and 6-2. Chistine Sihn and Casey Wong earned "All-Region Witness" awards. Catherine Veeneman pulled-off another double and was the sole competitor at Rancho Cucamonga to earn both "All-Region Witness" and "All-Region Attorney" awards.
