Fred Lynn Middle is the 2017 Battle of the Brains champion; second year in a row for the Hornets! Congratulations and great job today by all the participants.

The greatest student minds from Beville Middle School, Fred Lynn Middle School, Hampton Middle School, and Stonewall Middle School competed in the 6th annual PWCS "Battle of the Brains".

The competition, an academic quiz similar to Jeopardy, focuses on preparation for the upcoming Virginia SOL examinations. The competition was streamed live for all middle schools to watch.

For the Fred Lynn Middle School students, the victory was especially sweet, as they held onto their title as reigning champions.

A science problem stumped their opponents in the final round. The Fred Lynn team correctly explained why temperature stops decreasing between 4-11 minutes of an experiment (shown on a diagram) of cooling a substance.
