Garrettsville – Isabella Folio (right) and Brody Swigonski (left) won their respective divisions for the annual Garfield 4th grade PTO chess tournament (pictured). Congratulations to them both! The tournament was held over their lunch break for several weeks, and they recently competed in the finals.
For the boys division, Brody Swigonski defeated Kodiak Brogan in the final match. For the girls division, Isabella Folio defeated Addrianna Conway in the finals.
The tournament was sponsored by the Garfield PTO and the elementary school. Students were invited to come during their lunch once a week and play chess, checkers, cards, or even just read a book. Almost one hundred different students participated in the program. Special thanks to the PTO, the fourth grade teachers, and principal Keri Dornack.
