K-8 Scholastic Championships

6/23/13

This past Sunday was our June K-8 Scholastic Championships.  As usual, the amount of fighting chess and good sportsmanship on display was truly remarkable.  The K-2 section was won by Matthew Liew, who scored 4/4!

The very competitive K-5 section was almost stronger than the K-8.  The surprise winner was the 6th seeded Ambika Grover!  Ambika went up against some of the strongest players, however, that did not stop her from winning all of her games!

Finally, in the toughest section of the tournament, we had co-winners.  In a surprise turn of events, Anna Argulian (ranked 6/7 before the tournament) tied for first place with Eric Stein with 3.5/4!  Congratulations to both players on their spectacular performance.
