Cheslakees pads Charlie Cup lead

Port McNeill school gets wins from three Grade 4 students to build 10-0 lead in annual checkers competition

Cheslakees Elementary School of Port McNeill padded its lead to 10 points over all other challengers with three more victories in the annual Charlie Cup Checkers competition this month.

Cheyanne Lloyd, a Grade 4 student, claimed one point with her five-game sweep of tournament founder and host David Lyon during the Sunset Elementary School Fun Fair Apr. 1.

Jada Koskela-Laboucane and Charlotte Scragg, also Grade 4 classmates, both swept series to give the school two more points during the Regional Science Fair at Sunset April 7.

Lyon said he has received 354 entries in the competition, which will run through Father’s Day. He will announce the winning school and individual prize-winners during June Sports in Alert Bay.

Koskela-Laboucane also won a guessing game Lyon held during the science fair, featuring 10 rare and antique objects. She guessed all 10 correctly, and Sarah Brandson was second with eight correct guesses.
