Frank Love wins 2nd Place in the Northshore School District

On Saturday March 9th, 27 students represented Frank Love at the Shelton View Chess tournament.  This is a new record number of students ever to represent Frank Love at a single tournament.  Amazing!  The Shelton View tournament is only available to Northshore school distrcit students.  150 students from all over the district were present.  For 4 students from Frank Love, it was their first time ever competing in a chess tournament.  We are so proud to have Cody W., Ian, Monserrat and Sam as part of the team.  They had some good wins, tough matches and finished just a few points shy of qualifying for the state tournament.
We are also proud to have Aidan L., Aidan W., Caid, Cody M., Cole, Drew, Elliott, Ethan, Josh, and Liam R. compete on the Frank Love team.  Like the first time tournament goers, they played strong games against fierce competitors and came up shy of the 3 points needed to qualify for state this time. 




 2 kindergartners, Kandyce and Jack competed for our school team. Jack finished in 8th place in the kindergarten division and Kandyce finished in 7th. Congratulations to both of them!

Cameron, Cooper, Henry, Kenney, Liam S., and Seth all re-qualified for state by winning 3 games. 
Frank Love had one new State Qualifier at the Shelton View Tournament.  Lakshey won 4 games and finished in 10th place! 
In addition to Lakshey, Curtis, Dylan and Rohan each had 4 points.  Curtis won 7th place.

Dylan won 9th place.

Rohan won 6th place.
 Roshan was undefeated with 4 wins and a draw for a total of 4.5 points!  He took home the first place trophy!

It was another amazing tournament day for Frank Love chess club.  Lots of shaking hands, cheers, tears, pizza, bughouse, and smiles. 
At the end of the award ceremony, the top 6 schools in the Northshore School District were called on stage to receive a trophy.  Frank Love Chess Club won 2nd place!  Congratulations to the entire chess team!
