Whatcom Chess League 2007-08

Assumption School, Champions 07-08

On January 14, Lynden Middle School faced off against Assumption School for the WMSCL title. Here's what happened in Round One:

Assumption 2.0 -- Lynden MS 2.0

Yes, a tie. Paul Stewardson and Robyn Lesh won for Lynden, Drew Ronson and Ryan Lowry won for Assumption. So, with colors reversed and minor lineup changes, Round Two produced:

Lynden MS 0.0 -- Assumption 4.0

Congratulations to Assumption School, WMSCL Champions for 2008!

Middle School Chess League Forming 2007-08 Season

All Whatcom County middle schools, junior highs, and private schools that encompass 6th through 8th graders are invited to join the 2007-08 season of the Whatcom Chess League, a WHSCA rated league.

The WCL uses the same tournament rules as the high school league, with a few differences. Teams will consist of four players instead of five. (That way they can all fit into one car!) The matches take place concurrently with the final two high school league meets.

To participating schools we encourage a two-fold emphasis. First, an emphasis on learning: the rules of the game, chess notation, good sportsmanship, basic strategy, logical thinking. Then, an emphasis on fun: enjoying the game and the inter-school competition as a team, in a supportive environment.
