Queen Kowin with the Pawn of Destiny

SMS has crowned the first ever Chess Champion of the school.  The final four matches were exciting and all 34 students who participated did extremely well.  4th place went to Cooper Bonar (3rd grade), 3rd place to Gideon MacRae (6th grade).  Runner up was Griffin Ernst (6th grade), and our new champion is Kowin Offutt (4th grade).  With all these rising young stars it looks like the chess club will be very strong for several years!  Congrats to all who pariticipated and a special thanks to all the parents and staff who helped make sure the kids could attend!
