NC Battle of the Books State CHAMPIONS!

The Turrentine Middle School Battle of the Books team is the 2018 NC Battle of the Books State Champions!  They competed in the state championships in Raleigh on Friday, May 4.  Our team had previously won the ABSS district championship and the Region 5 championship to earn the right to compete in the state competition.  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.  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.  Turrentine is the first ABSS school to ever win a State Battle of the Books Championship - and they won by 16 points over the second place finishers! Great job!!!!
