Battle of the Books

March 11, 2011

Congratulations to the Sportheads, who won this year’s Holy Cross Battle of the Books.

The Sportheads, including 5th graders Landon Wirt, William Sweatt, Jorge Palazuelos and Gage Gailloux, will represent Holy Cross along with the Queen Bee Readers, who came in second place after many, many tie-breaking rounds of the final battle. Both teams will face teams from Holy Rosary-Wea and St. Ann’s in April.

After an individual written test and a practice team match-up at the school, six Battle of the Books teams competed for the championship at the Oak Park Barnes & Noble on Monday night.

A great job by everyone involved.
And thanks to our Holy Cross librarian Anne Anderson for organizing the competition!
