Classroom News : Youth Bridge Competition at Unit 131 Sectional Tournament
Posted by Kathy on 2017/5/23 22:05:16 (115 reads)

Just had a great Youth Tournament at the KC Spring Sectional. 15 Kids (18 and under) played 16 boards (I was the 16th player - ineligible). I am proud to announce that Michael and Sara Caughron came in 1st overall (and 1st for EW) with a 58.33 percent game and earned .98 silver masterpoints! In 1st for NS (3rd overall) were Patrick and Kate Caughron with a 54.17% game, earning .55 silver points. The winners for NS and EW each win a $50 scholarship provided by the Rolfe Bridge Fund administered through the Truman Heartland Community Foundation. They also received a small trophy. In 2nd overall (and 2nd EW), were Cecelia and Peter Caughron with a 57.29% game, earning them .74 silver points. Second NS were Miles and Joseph Caughron with a 52.08% game, earning them .34 silver points. Good job!

The winners and 3 of their siblings/cousins first took lessons in 2010. Two of the other participants first took a class in 2013. Another 5 have been taught by those first nine! All 14 played in this tournament. In addition, one student from Prairie Star Middle School, where I taught bridge this school year, was brave enough to give it a go! Very proud of her as well! I was her partner and she got a workout today as she was forced to play declarer on any hand when either one of us declared. This helped even the playing field for everyone. I only played when defending.
