BELLBROOK CHESS EAGLES High School Chess Club
For the first time, Bellbrook High School sent a Chess team to the Ohio Grade Level Chess Championships. The yearly competition was in Aurora, OH on Saturday, November 20th.
The following team members competed!
The compettion was fierce and after 5 rounds of play (10AM-7pm) the Bellbrook High School Team proved they had the right stuff and won Second place for 9th grade in state. This is quite an accomplishment for a high school chess team's first outing to state competition and there were several Columbus High School teams asking "who are the Bellbrook Chess Eagles".
On Saturday, February 13th, 2010, four top area high school chess teams participated in the 51st Annual Greater Dayton High School Chess League Championship. The teams represented Beavercreek High, Bellbrook High, Kettering Fairmont High, and the Miami Valley School. The top two schools from each of the two divisions played at the Dayton Chess Club at 18 West Fifth Street in downtown Dayton.
After 3 rounds of all day play, Beavercreek won all 3 matches but Bellbrook managed to break their no loss streak during the final 3rd round. Bellbrook HS Chess Team came in second after beating Kettering Fairmont and Miami Valley high schoolsin this yearly competition. Not bad, for a 2 year old chess team.
Thurgood Marshall vs. Bellbrook HS - 1/2 - 41/2 - BHS is winner.
Bellbrook HS vs. Miami Valley School - 4 -1 - BHS is winner.
BHS is one of four teams to meet on February 13th for the Montgomery County HS League at the Dayton Chess Club.
