Battle Champs...Again!

Congratulations to the Chilton Public Library for their triumph in the the 2010 Battle of the Books competition. That makes for back-to-back titles and dynasty in the making.
The champs for the 2nd straight time

Chilton claimed the win over Brillion and Kiel by a mere 2 points - 26 to 24 - after accumulating the most points in the preliminary rounds.

Brillion finished a mere 2 points behind the winners

Kiel made a strong push to dethrone the champs

The fight to the final round was tight as well. Kiel edged out Manitowoc by a single point to compete for the win. Manitowoc (calling themselves the "Azul Ninjas") made a strong push but came up just short.

Two Rivers and New Holstein joined forces for the second year in row. After some early bumps, they made things competitive with a solid second-round performance.

The Two Rivers/New Holstein amalgam gave a late charge

Congratulations to all Battlers for a great competition and some impressive recall on obscure facts from all of the books! We are already looking forward to 2011 to see if anyone can knock off the Chilton juggernaut...
