Logic and skill were the name of the game as students competed in the 2022 Onslow County Schools chess tournament.  

Keeping up with a-more-than-20-year OCS tradition, students of elementary and middle school ages gathered Saturday, April 23 at the Eastern North Carolina Regional Skills Center to put their chess skills to the test and compete for the gold.
