Who: Varsity Boys (7th gr. - 12th gr.)

COVID-19 Regulations @ Calvary Baptist: Family and fans can go watch. But please plan sitting together as families. Temperatures will be taken at the entrance of the building and face masks are at your own choice during the game, but suggested to and from the gym while going through their building.

Details: The boys playing need to plan on wearing dark blue or black b-ball clothes for this game. The opposing team may have away jerseys for our team. Players should bring water to drink for the game.

First Chess Tournament

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.
