Our top five competing chess players (and a few more who tagged along for fun) went to face off against Faith Bible Christian Academy (FBCA) on March 2nd. It was a long three hour trip down to Rosamond, IL. Our 2nd – 5th graders faced off against their 8th – 9th graders (their youngest players). Although challenging, our kids showed no fear and were quite impressive. Several won a few victories over their older competitors, including Justin Miller and Micah Oberholz. Overall our school lost the traveling trophy with a score of 12-3, but our own Micah Oberholtz did take home a 3rd place ribbon!

We went home feeling great and had some amazing fellowship as we stopped in to the Christian owned buffet, The Bonanza Steakhouse, in Lincoln, IL. We are learning from our mistakes and very much look forwards to a rematch against FBCA!

Thank you FBCA and Mr. Caleb Wheeler for the opportunity to compete and have fellowship.
