November 20, 2010, despite threats of snow in the passes, the Southern Oregon Chess League held a tournament at the Coquille High School. Coquille Varsity and Coquille Junior Varsity chess teams once again showed their dominance in the region with Sutherlin and Oakland participating. Marshfield and Myrtle Creek were unable to participate.
For the Coquille Varsity team, none of the other participating teams could snag a win off any of the five members. Jessi Ross, Tasha Keller, Stephen Mast, Jasmine Lambson and Jenni Ross won all their games placing Coquille clearly in first, Myrtle Point second and Sutherlin third.
For the Coquille Junior Varsity team, the only loss they suffered was against Oakland where Sarai was defeated on her board as she “dropped” a piece but the other four members, Aaron Grabinsky, Kaden Johnson, Tyler Neuschwander and James Hopper got all wins during the three matches. Coquille placed first, Oakland second and Sutherlin third.
