Bob Taylor, who has won many medals in physically demanding sports, proved he is adept at a cerebral game like chess as the 21st NW La. District Senior Olympics continued.
Taylor captured the gold medal in the 70-74 age bracket. It marked his 10th gold in the district’s competition. Robert Stockman claimed the silver and Bob Sutton won the bronze in the competition held at Randle T. Moore Center in Shreveport.
Bob Butland was awarded the 80-84 gold medal after matching wits with younger opponents. Don Sorrells and Ronnie Vasco took part in the chess tournament and the six-man field matched the largest in district history.
