SouthCarolina chess champs

At the 2011 National Youth Chess tournament (east) in Miami, local chess players Jack McDougall (at left above) and Kevin Rogers (right) played their hearts out to place nationally. Jack, a first grader at Beaufort Academy, placed 12th in the nation. Kevin, a third grader also at Beaufort Academy, placed ninth in the nation. Both boys had the highest score for their team. The BA team was National Champion runner-up, missing the national title by only 3 points. These young men have shown the nation that South Carolina is a chess state.
