The North Kingstown brothers of Aidan (age 15) and Ryan (age 14) Sowa represented Rhode Island in the U.S. Chess Federation’s invitational tournaments for middle school and high school students in Phoenix Arizona this past August. It was rare that two brothers would qualify to travel to the two tournaments the same year (the Barber is for middle school champions and the Denker is for high school champions). Ryan, 14, took second place in the middle school tournament and Aidan, 15, finished 22nd out of 50 in the high school tournament.
CONGRATULATIONS TO AIDAN AND RYAN AND THE ENTIRE SOWA FAMILY AND THANKS FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT OF RHODE ISLAND CHESS.
