Skinner North students participated in the 9th annual Chicago K-12 Chess Tournament at McCormick Place Saturday along with a record breaking field of over 500 kids. We also set a Skinner North record with 11 kids from our school.
We had a fun day and lots of individual successes. Doug Z earned a perfect 5 out of 5 in K-6 Novice. Due to tiebreakers, Doug earned the 2nd place individual trophy. What a great first rated tournament! In the K-6 Championship section, Leon C earned the 4th place trophy and Jack H earned the 9th place trophy. In the K-3 Championship section, Andy C earned the 6th place trophy. Returning to the K-6 Novice section, Julian M also earned an award with 4 points out of a possible 5 in his first rated tournament. Julian garnered a medal for 13th place. Congratulations to these award winners.
