Checkmate Cherryvale


 The newly formed chess team was brought to attention by the Newbys. 

   After they found out Cherryvale won state because they didn’t have anyone to compete with, Mr. Price stated, “We needed a team so Cherryvale doesn’t win.”

    The turn out for the team was expected to be minimal with only a few kids from the high school. The team ended up having around 20 kids from both the highschool and the elementary school. The coach of the chess team, Mr. Price, has been playing since he was around 6 years old. This season has been successful in the fact that Caney has beat Cherryvale at every competition. A few of the players said they signed up because it seemed fun and a change of pace. Stay on the lookout for the Caney Valley chess team. In a few years they are going to be a force to recon with.
