Congratulations to Eli Slaughter and Ronin Deschamps who competed in the Maine State Team Chess Tournament at UMO last Saturday. They competed in what is called the high school reserve section with 42 other students from all over the state. 

Eli came in 1st place with all 4 wins - his national chess rating is 1341!
Ronin came in 7th place with 3 wins and a chess rating of 715. 
Our BAHS team of 2 came in 3rd out of 12 teams!
Congratulations to these students!! They plan to attend two more chess tournaments this month.

(The championship team section required 3 more students to participate on the team. We welcome any chess players who want to go to tournaments to participate next year!!)
