Readers were put to the test in the annual Battle of the Books contest with the Redhawks team winning the championship.

“It felt really good we put in a lot of effort so it felt really good to have it come back to us and then win,” sophomore Aditi Shah said. “We won for Liberty so it was like school pride and then we got to get a trophy so that was really nice.”

With the girls’ basketball team getting a lot of attention for winning its second straight state championship, the Battle of the Books win demonstrates the wide variety of skills on campus according to Shah. 

“it feels good to know that our school can win things not just for sports and that we have a wide variety of skills at our school,” Shah said. “It feels good that skills that I have and that other people have is stuff that we can win things for.”

Librarian Chelsea Hamilton is already looking ahead and she encourages students to compete next year.

“It’s just fun if your a book person or you like trivia if you are competitive it’s a good way to do something exciting and different with your friends,” Hamilton said. “You get to talk about books all the time, that’s all it is you get to talk about books,”
