Krista Selby Wins U-18 at 4th Kasparov All Girls Open

It must have been a slow news day in Terre Haute; first NOW they're reporting a tournament result from March!!! From the Tribune Star website (Terre Haute, Indiana) Published: August 14, 2007 10:19 pm South student wins girl’s chess title Staff ReportThe Tribune-Star TERRE HAUTE — In March, Krista Selby of Terre Haute won first place in the 18-and-under division at the fourth annual All-Girls Open National Chess Championships in Chicago. The event was organized by the Kasparov Chess Foundation in association with USCF and Chess Wizards. One-hundred-thirty-six girls from kindergarten to 12th grade competed in the event and 19 states and one province were represented. For two years in a row — in 2005 and 2006 — she was the Indiana representative at the Susan Polgar National Invitational for Girls. Selby, who started playing chess when she was about 5, is a senior at Terre Haute South Vigo High School this year. ********************************************************************************* Interesting, very interesting. I'm going to check to see if Selby played in any Polgar-sponsored events this year. Added August 17, 2007: I did a search of SP's blog for Krista Selby's name and didn't find anything, which seems very strange. Perhaps the feature isn't working correctly.
