One hundred and two young chess players from nine different schools gathered at St. Alphonsus-St. Patrick School on Friday, November 9, for some challenging tournament play. Thirty-four of our own Chess Champions competed and brought home an amazing ten trophies. Our Kindergarten-First Grade, our Second-Third Grade, and our Sixth-Eighth Grade teams all won First Place trophies. There were numerous Achievement Medals for our players and some special individual trophy winners as well. First Grader Alexander won 1st place in his division and classmate Zachary took home 3rd Place. Third grader Luke Z. achieved 1st place in the second-third grade division while fellow third graders Alex won 2nd place, Ian took 3rd place, and Ryan O. won the 4th place trophy. Eighth grader Cameron also won 2nd place in the 6th-8th grade division. Coach Theo was extremely proud of both the achievements of his players as well as the sportsmanship and dignity the students displayed. Congratulations Chess Team!
