Chess Competition

Posted on: March 27, 2017

Established in 2002, the Queen City Classic Chess Tournament is a treasured Cincinnati event that gives children of all backgrounds the opportunity to compete in a chess tournament in an NFL stadium.  Drawing students from as many as ten states, the tournament at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio provides a positive, friendly venue for children to apply the skills they have cultivated through their love of chess."

All day on Saturday, March 25, 2017, 18 students from Three Rivers School District from 2nd grade up to 7th grade represented the 16th Annual Queen City Classic Chess Tournament, which was held at the Paul Brown Stadium.   At this year's tournament there was around 700 students in attendance from 120 different schools.

Our After-School Three Rivers Chess Club brought home 3 trophies. Both Casey Bracken (Grade 5) and Lee Garber-Ford (Grade 7) were awarded individually for winning 3.5+ matches.   Our 7th grade team brought home the 3rd overall trophy!  

Way to go Chess Club Jackets!
