Representative Pingree Greets Team Members

AUGUSTA - Members of the Deer Isle - Stonington Elementary School Chess Team visited the Statehouse Wednesday April 14 to be recognized by the Maine House of Representatives. The team recently won its sixth consecutive Maine Elementary State Chess Championship title, and placed eleventh at the National Championship held in Pittsburgh. The novice team, a part of Deer Isle-Stonington's team, won the state championship for the eighth consecutive year, and placed sixteenth in the national championship.

In the morning, the team met with Governor Baldacci, who asked what their secret of success was for winning so many titles. Team members responded with smiles, "We're just great." Rep. Hannah Pingree, D-North Haven, spoke at length about their accomplishments on the floor of the House. "I am very proud of this team's motivation and hard work," Pingree said, following the team's meeting with Baldacci. "The Governor and I were both very impressed with their 6th straight win, and their very large trophies."

Team members include Ian Pelletier, Andrew Babbit, Jay Boyce, Deven Haskell, Evan Rollins, Joe Brown, Chelsea Brown, Hayden Ciomei, Sam Grindle, Blake Bartlett, Goldie Garcia, Connor Morey, Jannelle Ciomei and Coach Richard Powell.
