Posted on 03/38/2023

Congratulations to Midway Middle School! They competed in the regional middle school Battle of the Books competition held on March 28 in Bladen County and won! Midway Middle competed against other middle school teams from Bladen, Clinton City, Columbus, Cumberland, Hoke, Montgomery, Moore, Richmond, Robeson, Scotland, and Whiteville City schools which are part of the Sandhills Region in North Carolina. 
In recent history, this is the second time that a Sampson County middle school team has won the regional competition, advancing to the state competition.

Midway will now advance to the state middle school battle of the books competition on May 5 in Cumberland County, where they will compete against seven other regional winners, all vying for the state championship.
