Hermiston high schoolers to battle it out with books

East Oregonian - 03-21


For the first time since its foray into battle, Hermiston High School will send a team to the Oregon Battle of the Books state competition. Sisters Jessica and Nadine Ferguson and their friend Jerence Lyons make up the team “cAPITALIZE cORRECTLY.” They won a regional tournament earlier this month in Baker City, and will now face off against 14 other schools in Salem on April 6, answering questions about a dozen books they’ve spent the past few months getting to know inside-out.
