LAKESIDE – Regional Champion Blue Ridge won several rounds at the State Mock Trial Tournament but top honors went to rookie sophomore Kayla Cowden who was named the Top Mock Trial Performer in Arizona.

Cowden was named to the All-Arizona Mock Trial team out of over one hundred students, all from teams that won their regional tournaments.  She was also named the Top Performer among the seven members of the All-Arizona Mock Trial Team. Will Hawkins also accomplished this in 2009 during his first year of competition. Cowden will receive a scholarship from the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services and Education for this achievement.
