9th-Grader Graham Gibson has tried for the past couple of years to take this title and her persistance finally payed off in 2008. With a perfect score of 4-0 (the same score she had last year) she was again forced into a playoff. This time against Angela Li, who also scored a perfect 4-0. Congratulations to both of these lovely, young ladies. I am sure Graham will represent our state well in the Susan Polgar Girls event.
