During the "sudden death", teams only had 15 SECONDS to discuss, decide and write an answer. Point Higgins was eliminated at the third tie-breaker question. Tongass School of Arts & Sciences and Fawn Mountain went to the 4th tie-breaker question, Tongass School team won! It was tense. It was exciting. There were extremely good challenges!!! CONGRATULATIONS to Tongass School!
FIRST PLACE: Tongass School
of Arts and Sciences
Another exciting battle with great challenges was the Fifth/Sixth Grades' Battle of the Books. Scores were close at half-time with Fawn Mountain and Houghtaling "neck to neck" - one question difference in scores which is 8 points. Fawn Mountain's team surged forward getting all eight questions correct in the second half. Houghtaling and Tongass School of Arts & Science team showed great thinking and determination and were awarded points for challenges in the second half - but it wasn't enough to take the lead.
FIRST PLACE: Fawn Mountain
The City Battle of the Books was scheduled for Tuesday night at Ketchikan High School.
