Congratulations to the all Ames chess team students who took on the challenge and represented Ames yesterday at the first annual RSU71 Elementary School Chess championship. There were 35 students competing from CASS, Ames, and Nickerson.

The Ames team members were:

3rd: Hunter

4th: Seth, Maverik, Justin - but Justin played in the 5th grade grouping

All students won some games and lost some games but everyone played well and did a great job representing Ames. This was a tough tournament and I am very proud of all students who participated.
