Activity News

Last Thursday your very own Trinity Rook Rocks began their campaign for chess glory with an impressive 3-2 win over Seneca High School.  Adam “Adam” Lanham and Ethan “The Bison” Gruneisen picked up early wins against their opponents, while Matthew Hubbuch and Trevor Gibb suffered heart-rending defeats to their formidable opponents. The match came down to the fifth board, where Travis “the Nihilist” Nilest was locked in a fierce battle with Calik Cash from Seneca. After confounding Cash by attempting to castle with his queen in the opening –“Oh.  Is that the queen?” – Nilest mounted a furious pawn push in the endgame, forcing his opponent’s king into the corner and vanquishing him with a ruthless checkmate. Wild celebration ensued, as Nilest was carried from the match on the shoulders of his teammates.

Casting competition continues tonight beginning at 6:30 p.m. in Shamrock Hall. This is for any non-boaters wishing to qualify for the Taylorsville Lake tournament.
