Please congratulate the members of the Chess Team.  They travelled to Columbia this past Saturday and competed against teams from all across the state.  As a team, they took home 3rd place in State.  Everyone that competed scored in the top 10, and Katie Eisenman was Board Champion on Board 3.  After playing from 10:30 a.m. until nearly 8:00 p.m., nobody on our team lost more than 1 game. Individual honors are listed below:

Board 1:  Erik Tkachenko (freshman) – 5th place
