On Saturday, January 11th, the Berkshire Junior High Power of the Pen team competed at the District meet at Lake Erie College bringing home ample bragging rights. Of the five seventh grade team members, three amazing writers finished in the top twelve out of hundreds of like-minded teens. India Martin placed twelfth, Aerowyn Dacek tenth, and Ella Yoder came in seventh place! After much effort and practice, these two teams really proved their talent as they rose to the occasion and wrote for three forty-minute rounds. The eighth-grade team had also received much in return for their passion; Vicky Spanos placed third place as an individual and the eighth grade team took home a third-place district trophy as well. Almost all individuals will be moving onto the regional tournament without a doubt, the others will know soon enough if they placed high enough to continue. Make sure you congratulate these spectacular students.
