Congratulations to Naomi Bashkansky who won the WA State Girls Championship held Feb 24-25 in Clyde Hill WA.  
She and Anne-Marie Velea actually tied, each with a score of 3.5, having drawn each other, in the 4 round competition
in a field of 14 girls all rated over 1000 NWSRS.  So an Armageddon style G/15;d5 White against G/12;d5 Black
with black having draw-odds decided the contest.  Naomi won the coin toss and selected black, and managed to finish
with a checkmate against white.  Naomi wins $750 donated by the Washington Chess Federation.  
Anne-Marie wins $250 donated by the Chess4Girls organization.
