ELIZABETHTOWN — Twenty-seven books, five middle school teams and 20 rounds of questions led to a championship for one Bladen County School’s middle-school team.


Elizabethtown Middle School fought a close battle, but remained on top at the end of the last round of questions during the recent Bladen County Schools Battle of the Books competition.


The purpose of the B.O.B. program is to encourage reading by all students at the middle school level. Students are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary genres. The game format of the competition creates interest and excitement in reading.


ETMS students began preparing in October, working together as a group to read and know the 27 books and authors, practice questions, and learn the rules of competition. The winning team of Cougars is comprised of Madison Brown, Juan Esteva, Danaja Graham, Olivia Hollingsworth, Helen Lopez, Alicia McKiver, Jatyra Moore-Peterson and Kimberly White.


The coaches for the team were Becky Kendall, Tori Martin, and Carla Priest.


As district winners, the ETMS team brought home a trophy, five iPads for the media center, and a complete set of B.O.B. books for next year’s competition.


The business sponsor of the Cougar Team was Dickerson Pharmacy.


The Elizabethtown Middle team will represent Bladen County at the Regional competition on April 10 in Fayettville.
