Our last local tournament of 2018 was another success! 37 Skinner North children played at Rickover along with almost 300 children from other area schools.
Our team included Mitra D playing in her first Skinner North tournament ever. She scored 3.5 out of 5 in the Novice 3-4 section. Congratulations Mitra! That is a great start with the team. We earned first place trophies in the Intermediate section and also in the Novice K-2 section. No other school won more team trophies and we led all teams with seven individual trophies.
Our Intermediate team was led by Matthew C, Doug Z and Charlie A who all earned trophies. Matthew took 1st place with 4.5 out of a possible 5 points. Great job by all three to lead our team to first place!
Our K-2 team was led by two first-time trophy winners. Luke C scored 4.5 and won the 2nd place trophy! Isaiah W earned a trophy with his 4.0 score. Hannah G also scored 4.0 but did not win a trophy due to tiebreaks. These three also did a great job leading our team to 1st place.
In other sections individual highlights included trophies won by Niccolo L and Jack H. Zack A, Eamonn K and Anjali M all scored 4.0 and could have won trophies if tiebreaks had fallen differently. Congratulations also to Mitchell A on a plus score in his first tournament in the Advanced section! Your hard work and preparation is paying off!
