Last weekend 4 members from Chess Club attended St. Anne Chess Tournament in Seattle. This year we have young participants but they did their best efforts and I am very proud of them. Here are the results:
- K-1 U800 Division: Dane Milton and Rachel Sloss attended this group, Dane got 4 points and 2nd place in individual results. St. Louise got 1st place team trophy in this group 😊
- 2-3 U800 Division: Christopher Antezana and Nathan Victor participated in this group, Christopher got a plus score with 3.5 points.
It was great to see Nathan attend his first tournament and Rachel got a medal for great sportsmanship. They did their best efforts in a challenging group and represented St. Louise school very well.
