<p><strong>Turrentine Middle crowned NC Battle of the Books State Champions<br /> </strong>5/7/18 &nbsp;&nbsp; &thinsp; &thinsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The Turrentine Middle School Battle of the Books team is the&nbsp;<strong>2018 NC Battle of the Books State Champions</strong>!&nbsp; They competed in the state championships in Raleigh on Friday, May 4.&nbsp; Our team had previously won the ABSS district championship and the Region 5 championship to earn the right to compete in the state competition.&nbsp; We are extremely proud of these kids who have worked so hard all year reading and re-reading the 27 books on the battle list.&nbsp; And a huge shout out to their coach, Ms. Say Sink, who has worked diligently with these students preparing them for all of the competitions.&nbsp; Turrentine is the first ABSS school to ever win a State Battle of the Books Championship - and they won by&nbsp;<strong>16</strong>&nbsp;points over the second place finishers!&nbsp; This a huge accomplishment for these students.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>Congratulations to Ms. Say Sink and these students:</p>
