Eagle-eyed Eagle

Logan Stetler, a fourth-grader at Riverview Elementary School, whose mascot is the eagle, scouts his next move with a keen eye during a chess tournament Friday with Animas Valley Elementary School. The two schools are the only ones in Durango School District 9-R with chess clubs. “Chess gives these students great intellectual stimulation and teaches good sportsmanship,” said Dr. Barry Hillmer, who heads the Riverview club, which hosted the event.
