It was a battle of book lovers Thursday morning, as Loudoun high school students competed in the 7th Annual Battle of the Books Semi-Finals.

High school teams were broken into three divisions, with Potomac Falls High School hosting the eastern competition; Stone Bridge High School the host site for the central competition; and Tuscarora High School hosting the western schools. Potomac Falls, Dominion, Broad Run and Park View competed in the eastern semi-finals; Stone Bridge, Briar Woods and Freedom in the central semis; and Tuscarora, Douglass School, Loudoun County, Loudoun Valley and Woodgrove in the west.

Students from the competing teams were asked questions from a selection of books. A certain amount of points were given for each correct answer. Five rounds consisted of 10 questions each.
