Battle of the Books held at Tri-County Middle School

Fierce Fabulous Foxes and Nefelibata competed against each other during the championship round of the 7th annual Tri-County Middle School Battle of the Books on Feb. 26, with Nefelibata edging out the completion to take first place.

This year, 55 students participated in 13 teams over the course of the program which began in November. Each team of students are given the same 10 books to read and then go head to head in single-elimination battles starting in early February.

With a closely tied matchup, Nefelibata, a veteran team that had been battling for at least three years, began taking the lead to secure the win against the Fierce Fabulous Foxes, a team consisting of 5th graders who were battling in their first competition.
