Every year around this time rocky mountain starts the chess tournament where kids that go to rocky and want to participate in the chess tournament can. there are multiple rounds that happened to find out who the ultimate chess player is.

When interviewed Brodie Pierson he said,” I really hope I make it far in the tournament I would love to be the finalists.”

Being in the chess tournament means a lot to the people competing they all want to be the winner but not everyone can win sadly. in the past week or so the chess tournament has hit it half point where they are halfway there to finding who is the ultimate winner. there are still lots of games that have too happened to find the winner.

When interviewing Ethan white he said,” I am very excited about going against Thomas Harris and I really hope I win”.

Thomas Harris said,” next week I go against Ethan white, and I am going to definitely be prepared to win”.

These two guys in the chess tournament are very excited to go against each other and they can’t wait to see who wins. All the people watching the chess tournament are so excited to see who wins and probably makes the people plays feel very supported.

When interviewing Hannah Hekking she said,” I like watching the chess tournament it’s super cool see what the people at rocky can do”.

Not only if it fun for the people playing it is also fun for the people watching too.

If you want to keep updated about the chess tournament and who wins go to the four corners by the main office to find the bracket.

    This seems like a very exciting opportunity for those who really like chess. The players seem very eager to win. I would love to see more school competitions like this for students to be able to patriciate.
