Preliminary & Semifinal Rounds
The five Preliminary and three Semifinal Battles took place on Saturday, February 12 with a record attendance of 1,996. Four teams from each Preliminary Battle went on to one of the Semifinal battles later in the day. Ultimately, six teams went on to the Grand Battle on Thursday night, February 17.
Final rounds – The Grand Battle
There was a record crowd of 293 people on at the Schoolcraft High School Performing Arts Center. The competing teams were two Schoolcraft teams – Gizmos and Peace Out Peppers – and four Vicksburg teams – SEN JAM, Reading Wizards: Chapter 2, Nick-of-Time and Larry and the Ladies.
Scores were high all-around, but in the end, Peace Out Peppers from Schoolcraft carried home the trophy with a score of 101 – just four points short of a perfect score.
All participants in the Grand Battle received gift certificates from Kazoo Books. There was much excitement at the event, and the library has heard that some teams have already formed for Battle of the Books 17. One even has their team name chosen already!
Thanks to all those who participated and volunteered their time, making Battle of the Books 16 a record-breaking success!
