The middle school Hardin Park Gold team came in a very close second in the regional Battle of the Books, finishing just two points behind first place. The regional competition is open to school systems in 14 counties in northwestern North Carolina.

This team, with mostly the same students, has won the Watauga County Schools Battle of the Books two years in a row and finished second in the state last year.  Hardin Park Media Specialist Candice Trexler describes the team as “highly motivated and very hard working. They have earned the success they enjoyed and we’re very proud of their achievements.”
