Gulfport, Fla. – A Stetson University College of Law trial team won the Southeast Regional Competition of the National Trial Competition Feb. 11-13 in Jacksonville. With the win, Stetson advances to the national finals in San Antonio, Texas, at the end of March as the top-ranked team from the region.

The winning team consisted of Gabrielle Osborne and Dante Weston and witness members Kate Alexander and Mike Kest. Stetson Professor Pamela Bell coached the team.

“The team exhibited exemplary conduct both inside and outside the courtroom,” Bell said. “With each trial in the competition, the team improved and adapted. In the finals, the team rose to the occasion and carried on the Stetson tradition of excellence. I am very proud of them.”

Sixteen teams from Florida and Georgia competed in the event. Stetson defeated Georgia State University in the finals.
