TERRE HAUTE — Eastern High School's chess team finished third in its division at the Scholastic Chess of Indiana State Team Chess Championships this year.
The competition was held in March in Terre Haute. Eastern's team of Zachary Johnson, Ethan Campbell, Austin Campbell and Cameron Wright competed against more than 100 high school students on 26 teams from across the state.
Chess divisions are based on grade level, so Eastern's students were in the 12th-grade-and-under division. A team from Carmel High School claimed first, and a team from Canterbury School in Fort Wayne took second.
