The Hardcovers’s middle school team (for students in grades 6 through 9) began competing in 2012 and the Hardcover’s high school team (for students in grades 9 through 12) began competing in 2016.
Our teams have done quite well over the years:
- 1st place at first Teen/High School Regional Battle in 2016
- 2nd place at Middle School Regional Battle in 2016
- 3rd place at Teen/High School Regional Battle in 2017
This year, our middle school team is collaborating with the Town of Esopus Library team.
Practice sessions take place once a week in the summer with regional battles taking place in late summer or early fall.
