Pawling Wildcats Battle at Regional Competition!

Saturday, September 6th 2014 at 9:00am in the morning, 8 teens from Pawling made their way into the Main Building of the Columbia Green Community College for the 10th Annual Battle of the Books regional competition.  They sported safety orange shirts each personally designed and decorated.  It was hot and the team was ready to go!

Through nail biting tension, the team battled the other teams from Kent, Pleasant Valley/Lagrange, and Kingston! All rounds were very close and challenging.  After three rounds we were defeated and went on to enjoy the rest of the very hot Saturday, wishing luck to the rest of the teams that had survived to that point.  After an amazing summer of books, games, battles, and buzzers, we finished our 2014 season.

Congratulations to Brigid Barrick, Aidan Graham, Alyssa Harris, Avalon Lenenthal, Madeline Ragusa, Susannah Smith, Stephanie Sypher, and Jessica Tocci!  Amazing job and a wonderful summer!!  Can’t wait for next year!!
