Stockdale Elementary School competes in ‘Name That Book’
The Book Worms were all smiles after taking sixth place in the May 27 “Name That Book” regional competition in Seguin.
Students at Stockdale Elementary School participated in a competition called “Name That Book!” The competition is for students in third through fifth grades who enjoy reading.
Students had to qualify for the competition in October and were then placed on teams. The teams were given a list with 20 books to read throughout the year to prepare for the competition, which is set up similar to a game show. The teams were orally given a quote and they had to determine which book the quote came from without an actual list in front of them. With each correct answer the teams were awarded points. The team with the most points after 25 questions wins the competition. The local winning team gets to advance to the regional competition in Seguin to compete against the winning teams of each of Seguin’s elementary schools.
Stockdale held its local competition on May 22 with 37 students competing on seven teams. The competition was very close and exciting! The point spread between all of the teams at the end of the competition was only three points. We also had a tiebreaker to determine second and third place. The teams and places consisted of the following:
First place -- Book Worms: Ashton Cessor, Michael Crouch, Brooke Deagen, Hayden Hajovsky, Bethany Heimann, and Coach Kay Deagen
Second place -- The Novel Ideas: Emily Aguilar, Jon Borchardt, Daysen Gomes, Kenan Haecker, Billy Rivas, Cotter Simpson, and Coach Denay Simpson
Third Place -- The Book Warriors: Seth Darilek, Stephen Heathcoe, RJ Marquez, Alyson Rice, Kaylee Sanchez, and Coach Diana Sanchez
Bookmaniacs: Sam Garcia, Taylor McGrew, Austin McKenzie, Trentyn Voelkel, Zoey White, and Coach Brigit Lucas
Ravenous Readers -- Logan Baker, Blakely Cavazos, Heaven Marquez, Staci Nugent, Barson Schmidt, Luke Scribner, and Coach Tracy Clapp
All Star Readers -- Jaren Cano, Parker Martinez, Nikko Monita, Jayden Soefje, Jalietza Zepeda, and Coach Tanya Eller
Book Thieves -- Cora Akin, Travis Bishop, Jake Ferguson, Ethan Fratelli, Andrew Voelkel, and Coach Pat Rutland.
The Book Worms advanced to compete in Seguin at the regional competition on May 27 and did a great job representing Stockdale Elementary, tying for sixth place. The “Name That Book” teams and coaches would like to thank the following people and businesses for their generous donations in helping to purchase T-shirts, medals, certificates, and books: Ruthie Wagener, Built Rite Homes, Bang Electric, and Bennie and Debbie Martinez. We would also like to thank Kenneth Clapp for designing the T-shirts. Stockdale Elementary teachers and students are already looking forward to another great competition next year!
