Members of St. Mary’s Academy mock trial team — Kyra Lauersdorf, Kaitee Steiert Madison Hogan and Molly Kelleher — speak with Classroom Law Project Executive Director Marilyn Cover before their final round. The team earned first place and advanced to the national competition, held in Connecticut this May.

The 31st annual Oregon Mock Trial state competition brought 16 high school teams from as far as Baker City to hold trials at the Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse in downtown Portland. Two days and three rounds winnowed the competition to two finalists: St. Mary’s Academy from Portland and Lakeridge High School from Lake Oswego. Village Home Education Resource Center came in third, and the fourth place saw a rare tie between Portland’s Grant High School and Catlin Gabel School.

A geography bee family dynasty

For the fourth time in five years, the Duda family from St. Clare School in Southwest Portland competed in the Oregon Geographic Bee, sponsored by the National Geographic Society. Eighth-grader Dominic Duda placed in the top 25 percent at the March 31 bee.

Earlier this year, Dominic won the St. Clare School competition — his third win. Prior to Dominic’s three-peat, his older sister Clare won the school bee, but her hopes at a longer winning streak were cut short when Dominic beat her in an epic tie-breaker three years ago, when he was a sixth-grader and she was in eighth grade.
