Lake Effect Poetry’s first NPS2016 bout (Bout 17 at the Decatur School of Ballet) just wrapped up.  Slamministrator Vertigo Xavier drew the C.  Nuyorican drew the A, Eclectic Truth drew the B, and WeSpoke drew the D.

For the first round, the team sent up a group piece, “Race Card,” and scored a 25.7.  Ephraim went for the second round with “Nappy Boy” and picked up a 25.3.  Damien scored a 25.4 in the third round with “Brokeology.”  AKeem ended the slam with “You Gon’ Get This Twerk” and scored a 26.9, the highest score of the bout.

Eclectic Truth finished fourth with a 98.6.  Nuyorican’s 101.6 landed them third.  WeSpoke’s phenomenal fourth-round group piece brought them up 102.1 and second place.  Lake Effect won the bout with a 103.3!

The team’s next bout (Bout 32) is tomorrow at 9:00 at the Java Monkey Coffee.  We will be up against Northampton, Urban Spoken Word, and Team Olympus.  If you’re in the Decatur, GA area, we will see you there!
