Eugene students win chess championships

Jessie Liu, a fifth-grader at McCornack Elementary School in Eugene, became the first girl in at least 12 years to be named a state chess champion after winning all 10 of her matches at a Chess for Success tournament in Portland last weekend.

Eighth-grader Raleigh Foster, a home-schooled student from Eugene, also won the competition for his age group. Also, the Bethel HomeSource team won the team championship on Friday.

The competition featured young chess players through eighth grade. Players previously qualified by placing in a regional tournament in Eugene last month, chess teacher Jerry Ramey said.
