Saint George's School won 1st place in the team competition at the Kings Clash chess tournament on Saturday, Nov. 3.  The team was led by three players scoring 4.0 out of 5.0 possible.  Two of them, Adrian Rooney and Eshan Reddy, were part of a three way tie for 1st in the K-6 section.  "Adrian finished in 2nd overall on tiebreaks, while Eshan won the trophy for top third grader," said SGS coach James Stripes.  "Adrian finished the tournament without any losses; he drew his first two games and then won the rest."  Noah Hochheimer also scored 4.0 and finished in 3rd overall in the K-4 section, taking home the trophy for top second grader. 

Saint George's had two players who scored 3.0, Joey Maestas and Donovan Bradford, with one of them counted towards the team score of 15.0 for the top four players.  The tournament, hosted at Saint George's, attracted 60 players from the Spokane area and northern Idaho.  See a Photo Gallery of the competition in Metters Gym.

Saint George’s novice debaters took the Mount Spokane Rookie Rumble by storm this weekend.  Ninth graders Cassie Benson and Maddy Roberts reached the Final Four in Policy debate, while Lincoln-Douglas debater Beth Schwartzwelder reached the Elite Eight.  Benson and Roberts tackled this year’s Immigration Topic; Schwartzwelder debated over how to weigh political candidates’ privacy rights versus the public’s need to know.  

The tournament marked the three novices’ first-ever contest, and took place against GSL and North Idaho schools of all sizes.  In all, a terrific weekend for Saint George’s debate, and a promising start for this year’s rookies.  Go Dragons!
