School's chess club takes second in state competition; will compete in first-ever county tournament on Saturday.
Essex Elementary School teacher Robert Gray just hoped to expose his students to chess and teach them the strategies involved with the game. In recent years, Gray has done that and more as the chess club has quickly become one of the most popular extracurricular activities at the school. In all, Essex Elementary has 60 members in its chess club with 45 regulars meeting weekly after school to play and learn more about the game. “We’ve opened it up to everyone and want it to be fun, but it has also become very competitive for many of the students,” Gray said. This competitiveness was on full display last month at Dumbarton Middle School when several students from Essex Elementary came home with trophies from the Maryland Scholastic …

First-year coach Kevin Cross helped lead the Mavericks into the regional dual meet playoffs.
All Kevin Cross hoped to accomplish this season in his first year as Eastern Tech’s varsity coach was for the Mavericks to post a winning record after going 6-8 last season. The Mavericks have accomplished that – and more. Eastern Tech enters tonight’s home match against Sparrows Point – a match rescheduled following a snow cancellation last month – with a 9-3 record, following a 67-12 win over Randallstown on Friday. That win marked the Mavericks’ third match in three days last week, a span where the team went 2-1 as they also beat Dundalk after losing to Perry Hall. “We’ve come a long way this season,” said Cross, a 2000 Eastern Tech graduate and a physical education teacher at Holibird Middle School. “This team is working hard and …
