Blaine, WA - At the Washington State High School Chess Team Championships, Lakeside and Interlake tied for the title after five rounds. Overtime, to determine the State Championship, was a five-on-five sudden death speed chess playoff, each player having three minutes on the clock (with a two second delay).
