Catch ’em all

    There was a lot of preteen excitement and card-flipping yesterday at the Burlington Center Mall, where the Pokemon City Championship was held.

    Youngsters (and some young adults) participated in the competition, which leads to state, regional and world competitions that offer top prizes like a $3,500 college scholarship.


    The six-round event was broken down into three age groups and 100 participants were expected.
