Portland Prevails in 4-City School Tourney

Wednesday May 30, 2012

Youngsters in Portland, OR, defeated their rivals in Mexico City in a four-city school tourney held on KGS May 20th.  Ann Arbor and Detroit MI also competed, with Academy of the Americas, in Detroit, notching up a win in the first round, but losing in the second.  Students from Portland were eager for paybacks, as Mexico’s Pipiolo Academy had defeated all comers in their first inter-city match this past February (see Mexico Schools Portland).  All four schools have been competing with each other on KGS, and meeting each other on Skype as part of an international collaboration co-sponsored by the AGF.  -Paul Barchilon, E-J Youth Editor.  Photo: Mexico Team, top, by Siddhartha Avila, Portland Teams, bottom, by Peter Freedman.
