Chess Club Wins 3rd Place in Competition

On Saturday, February 4, the LCEU Chess Club members attended their first tournament. The Midlands Scholastic Chess League hosts an opportunity for young players to represent their schools while competing individually against their peers in the Midlands area. This experience was a great way to further enjoy and improve in the game, make new friends, and to build self esteem. 

The LCEU Chess Club came away with some great memories and won 3rd place out of seven elementary schools in the competition. Students competing were:

3rd Graders
Mason Dembowski
Joseph Robinson
Josiah Verdejo

4th Graders
Cooper Collins
Ben Jones
Talyn Meassick
Mitchell Stalcup
George Strange
William Van

5th Grader
Adam Van
