By the end of the state championship chess tournament this past Saturday at LHS, Seniors Michael Sweet and Nate Livernois both held medals in their hands, with Sweet placing tenth and Livernois placing ninth in the competition.

“It was a really cool event,” chess club adviser Ms. Jabar said. 

With the competition divided among four divisions: K-3, Elementary, Middle School, and High School, over 60 representatives competed.

“They [Sweet and Livernois] should be proud of their performances this year,” Jabar said.

Even though it was a long day for Jabar, her favorite part of the day was watching the competitors have fun, especially in the lobby both pre- and post- match.

“Everyone enjoys it,” Jabar said. “I’m hoping for everyone to come back next year as well.”
