Battle of the Books Results

The 2009 Battle of the Books was held last night at Silver Lake College. The Two Rivers team and the New Holstein Team joined forces to become New Rivers (or was that Two Holsteins?) and squeaked out a third place victory! They missed second place by only 1 point and the final battle went back and forth the entire game.

Congratulations to Chilton for the back to back championship!

All I can say is, wait til next year!
