The Skinner North Chess Team played in Chicago Chess Foundation’s first ever Leap Day Tournament this weekend at Nobel Elementary. It was an amazing day for our team and our players. We had 43 students participate! This was the largest team we have fielded this year.
James M. played in his first tournament for Skinner North. We had so many of our players put together their best tournaments so far this weekend! It is tremendously encouraging to see our players improving and so enthusiastic about chess. Our team took home first place trophies in the Pawns, Knights, Bishops, and Intermediate sections.
