In preparation for their chess meets, S of O students practice one to three hours each week. “There are currently 15 active chess members, 11 of whom participated in this tournament,” said Chess Team sponsor Layne Wilks. “S of O students are looking forward to more tournaments in the coming winter and spring.”

In the individual category, Hunter Poole from NCA finished first, and Dakota Burrall, from Bradleyville, finished third.
