It's time to start preparing for the new school year! Lots of information on after school programs, athletics, transportation and much more in this newsletter.
The NC Scholastic State Championship Chess Tournament was held here, in Charlotte, at the University Hilton on February 24 & 25. Over 700 students from around the state came to compete in this huge event, 26 of whom were Lab chess players. In the K-3 division, we had a team of 13 students, the K-5 division had 9 students, and the K-8 division had 4 students.
And the results are remarkable!
Individual recognition was awarded to Attila Montesano for 13th place in K-3, Jake Baugh for 6th place in K-5, and Christian Mayer for 9th place in K-8. In subcategories, Jake Baugh received 2nd place for players rated U1200 in the K-5 division and Liam Parsons received 2nd place for players rated U800 in the K-5 division.
Sportsmanship awards go to Lian Araiza and Tristan Gaddy.
