After the first full day of play in week 2, Messalonskee Middle School in Oakland, Maine takes over the lead from its southern neighbor, Auburn Middle School. Earning over 181,000 grains in one day, Messalonskee has thrown down the gauntlet! Leading the way for Messalonskee with 43,820 grains earned is ME1862_17fmcalkins.
West coast leader CAdnhs_Erikx from Del Norte High School in California has earned 38,600 grains of rice so far. From the midwest, WIvasdgasser from the Verona Area School District is just a few grains behind at 38,310!
The overall RiceBowl Challenge continues to be led by the AFC team. The influence of New England teams may be helping the AFC team lead, but perhaps Del Norte High School can encourage its West coast peers to join the Challenge?
