Chess kings. From left, Alex King, 11, Jesse Madrigal, 12, and Roy Wedge, 10, display their winnings from the AmericInn Scholastic Chess Tournament in Atchison. Jesse, son of Reuben Madrigal, Lawrence, placed first at the tournament. Roy, son of Paul and Linda Wedge, rural Lawrence, placed second and Alex, son of Joe and Jody King, placed third. Their performances qualify them to compete in the national tournament in St. Paul, Minn., where $12,000 in scholarships will be up for grabs. Phil Wedge submitted the picture.
