Successful Chess Tournament

The South Loop Chess Team had another very fun and successful tournament last weekend (2/26) at Rickover Naval Academy.  Thirteen students competed in the four age groups and among them were first time competitors, returning veterans, students earning a personal best score, and two trophy winners!  Abhishek Kabra earned a very impressive 4 points to take 5th place in his division and PJ McAndrew tied for 7th place as an individual in his division and he is now our first team member to have earned 2 awards!  Congratulations to the boys and all of the students who competed, they all did great!
