Bains Elementary School students placed fourth in Book Battle at the National Jr. Beta Convention in Savannah, Georgia.

The fifth-grade Book Battle team included Terralyn Curtis, Rachael Gosserand and Addy Landry. Team members attributed their success to hard work, encouragement and synergizing.

“We all became super readers and focused on the four books we each had to read,” Terralyn said.

“If there was a question we were not so sure of, we put our brain power together and used the process of elimination to determine the best answer,” Addy said.

“We also put our writing skills to use for those constructed responses,” Rachael said.

The girls plan to take their team to the next level and remain as teammates during their middle school years.

Other students who represented West Feliciana Parish schools were the Bains Elementary Spotlight Your Club  team of Marlie Bedell, Olivia Wilson and Mary-Catherine Lott; and the West Feliciana Middle School Quiz Bowl team of Andrew Dantin, Ben Ferguson, Thy Hong and Felipe Del Solar.
