Blue Hill Consolidated school CHess TEam


It’s been a bumper crop for chess players at BHCS. The Chess Team and Club expanded to include 2nd through 8th graders--30 players in total.

Cameron Wendell, a senior at Deer Isle High School, came back to coach for his third season. The numbers of new players were so great that veteran team members took turns coaching their younger classmates.

At the Maine State Championship on March 12, 2016, the Junior High and K-6 Novice teams both secured 2nd place. This continues BHCS’s streak of placing at the state level: 1st in the K-8 Championship in 2015 and 1st in the K-6 Championship in 2014.

The last two years the team has gone on to compete and perform at Nationals: 2nd place tie in 2015 in the K-8 under 750 division and 18th place in 2014 in the same division.

The future is bright with a pipeline full of eager determined players. Please consider helping us continue to strengthen the BHCS chess program so that it benefits our students for years to come. Thank you!
