Tournament Results - December 8

Two Silver Knights tournaments took place on December 8, 2007: The December Crush in Sykesville, Maryland, and the December Blizzard in Highlands Ranch, Colorado.

In the K-3 section of the Crush, Noah Calloway-Seibert went 4-0 in his first tournament ever to win the first-place trophy and earn a provisional rating of 1072. The winner of the K-8 section had an even more remarkable result, however - Ashley Riddle, rated 559, swept through the section to take first place at 4-0.  Ashley gained nearly 300 rating points and beat the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place finishers, all of whom were rating higher than her! David Hevey won the Open section with a score of 3.5, yielding only a last-round draw to Joseph Ellis that clinched him clear first place.

Thomas Farley took first place in the Blizzard with a 4-0 score, followed closely by Rohan Balan at 3.5-.5. Mountain View Primary won first place among school teams, narrowly edging out the host school, Summit View, for the second tournament in a row.
