Battle of the Books: Going to Nationals!!

January 31, 2014: The LSD Battle of the Books team has qualified for the national competition! They finished as one of the top four teams, and will travel to Gallaudet University in May for the nationals. 

This was LSD's first year to compete in this event - and wow! What a performance! The students read and discussed the assigned books, took on the responsibility of preparing for the matches and showed extraordinary leadership skills throughout the competition. We are so proud of them!

Congratulations to the team:

  • Jordan Howard
  • Ari Latino
  • Nthabeleng MacDonald
  • Chelsey Scott
  • Kate Scott

And thanks to their coaches Kelly Jumonville, Jennifer Lash and BB Stirling.


January 21, 2014: How exciting! Our Battle of the Books team has reached the playoff round in their division, the "Green Division." (Appropriate for us - our school colors are Green and White!!)

The playoff rounds will occur later this week. It will be a very busy time, with the Boys' Mason Dixon Basketball Tournament here as well!

We will announce the results as they become available. 

Congratulations to our team and their coaches!
