The Charlotte Lab School chess team kicked off its second year of competition with a smashing success this weekend at the CMSCA Team Tournament at Olympic High School.
Lab fielded a team of 38 students. Players were split into teams for the competition, where each individual played three games of chess.
Lab teams won six out of seven possible first place trophies. The dominance of the Lab teams was such that the tournament staff ran out of trophies!
All our players displayed great sportsmanship and teamwork, and we could not be more proud. This is a stupendous start to the season for these young Lab players, and we look forward to great things from this team.
Coaching team: Angie Kinghorn, Monica Montesano, Lisa Parsons, Cindy Smith, and John Teague.
