From staff reports

The Cherokee County School District was well represented at the Regional Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl Competition last week in Gainesville, with two schools taking top honors and four advancing to the next level of competition.

R.M. Moore Elementary School placed first in the elementary school division, and Creekland Middle School placed first in the middle school division.

Both will advance to the divisional competition, which will be on Feb. 23 in Cobb County.

Teasley Middle School won second place in the middle school division and Woodstock High School won second place in the high school division. Both advance to the divisional competition.

River Ridge High School placed third at the regional competition.

The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl is a reading competition open to teams of students in grades four through 12. Teams are required to read selections from the Georgia Peach Teen and Georgia Book Awards lists prior to competing in an academic bowl format.

The Cherokee County-level reading bowls were in January, and the winners were: elementary school, R.M. Moore, first place, and Chapman, second place; middle school, Creekland, first place, and Teasley, second place; and high school, Woodstock, first place, and River Ridge, second place.
