PORT McNEILL—Madison Woo, a grade 4 student at Sunset Elementary School, forced a three-way in the annual Charlie Cup checkers championship last week when she swept a five-game series from contest host David Lyon.
The win, achieved during the Sunset Elementary Fun Fair Friday evening, earned Sunset one point in the school standings, matching co-leaders Avalon Adventist Junior Academy and Port Hardy Secondary School with one point each.
The contest runs through the June Sports Festival in Alert Bay on Father’s Day weekend, after which Lyon presents prizes to top performers.
He has received 328 entries while attending a variety of special school events.
Woo received a Nancy Drew mystery book for winning the school point, and her name will go in for the big prizes, including the grand prize of an iPhone 4S.
