Baltimore students take chess title
A team from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute won the K-12 unrated division of the National K-12 Chess Championships in Columbus, Ohio, the Baltimore Sun reports.
In addition, four Baltimore students took top-10 individual honors.
The Baltimore Kids Chess League, which was formed in 2004 as an after-school program, provides coaches and equipment at 60 schools throughout the city. The program, which works in conjunction with the Abell Foundation, is among the few of its size in the country that encompass students from elementary through high school. More than 1,000 students participate.
