Middle School Students Compete in Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books, which took place on Tuesday, February 19, and Wednesday, February 20, at Quaker Valley Middle School, was a success for Sewickley Academy’s Middle School teams. Grade 6 had three teams participate, and Grade 7 had two teams enter the contest.

After a high-stakes tie-breaker round for Grade 6, the Reading Exterminators placed first and the Beaver Bandits placed third out of nearly 25 teams. The Grade 7 teams also participated in a tie-breaker round, one that exhausted all prepared questions from the judges. The Pageturners took second place out of about 20 teams.
