On Wednesday, April 4,  our Desert Ridge Academy Battle of the Books team competed in Battle of the Books at John Glenn Middle School.The meet lasted around 45 minutes.

There were 2 rounds. In the first round, students were asked questions individually. If a team member got a question right, the team received a point. If a team member got a question wrong, the team did not get penalized. In the second round, students competed with buzzers. But in this round if a team member got a question wrong, the team got a point taken away.

Palm Desert Charter Middle School walked away with first place and John Glenn Middle School won second place.

“Battle of the Books is the best club at DRA and so much fun,” says Caleb Stevens.

The team was comprised of Caleb Stevens, Evelyn Walker, Jacob Barney, Lauren Fimbres

Although DRA did not place in the competition, students had a lot of fun. If you wish to compete in Battle of the Books next year, go see Mr. Deagle in room 303.
