The second annual Elementary School Chess Tournament was held at Carroll Bell Elementary on March 21.

A total of 45 students from third through fifth grade competed in a six round Swiss-style chess tournament in the school’s library.

Eight elementary schools from across the district sent students to represent their campus and compete for first, second and third place medals.

Each campus also had chess sponsors to assist on the tournament floor including Isabel Garza from Bellaire, Joe Barrientes from Carroll Bell, David Cruz and Tatia Allison from Schulze, Michelle Brown and Sandra Silva from Rayburn, Rey Carreron from Morrill, Kelly Anderson from Stonewall Flanders, Desiree Alvarado from Collier and Juan Bazaldua from Gilbert. These sponsors have spent the entire school year getting their students ready for the big day.

Carroll Bell fourth-grader Joshua Torres came in second place with four wins, two draws and no losses (5 points.)
