2017 Battle of the Books Team

Our Battle of the Books team won First Place in the Onslow County Elementary Battle of the Books Tournament on March 3rd. They competed over 2 days at Southwest High School. The students read about 18 books and practiced with Mrs. Lynch and Mrs. Floyd the last 3 months, answering questions about all of the books. The competition was intense! In the finals, our team battled with Carolina Forest, Dixon, Jacksonville Commons, Sandridge, and Parkwood Elementary Schools. It came down to a tie-breaking Battle with Carolina Forest!  

The kids were so poised on stage and did not get discouraged at any point in the competition. They were up against some great teams and we were very proud of all of them for their confidence and their enthusiasm!  

The team consisted of Marielle Hirkala, Quinn Gilbert, Karley Davis, Akayla Hamrick, Noah Timmerman, Robbie Heite, Logan Walters, Katie McElmon, Mackenzie Phillips, Ella Green, and Caleb Havens. 

Their next competition is TBA - but we wish them good luck!
