Mililani Middle School Brings Home State Chess Title

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with eXp Realty RB-19250

On Saturday, March 10, 2007 at Windward Community College, the Mililani Middle School Blazers competed with the top scholastic chess teams in the state and won the State Middle School Title.

For the first time since the school opened Mililani Middle School will be the home of the perpetual trophy.  Over the last couple of years they have come close a few times taking silver medals.  In February at the Presidents Day Interscholastic Chess Tournament, Mililani Middle School Blazers won their first set of gold medals, lead by 6th grader Stephen Mau.  What made that feat absolutely amazing was they were missing their top player, former 5-time state champion, Ryan Palomares.

With their first team win behind them, they arrived last weekend looking for their first state title.  This time they had Ryan Palomares with them, along with 6th grader Stephen Mau who recently entering the scene terrorizing many local adult tournament players.  Stephen, would have been one of the favorites in the K-6 division for an individual title had he not stepped up to the K-8 division to help his school team.  6th grader Kalvin Fukumoto also made the sacrifice for the good of his team and stepped up to the K-8 division.  He had a great tournament scoring 4-1 matching Ryan and Stephens Scores.  Mililani Middle at the end of the day edged out last years champs, Pearl Highland by only one point.

The MMS Chess Club is headed up by MMS teacher Carolyn Alameida.

The chess club meets Fridays at 3:15pm in Room F-104
