Academy Chess Team Wins Again!

The Academy at the Lakes Chess Team retains its title of first place in the Tampa Bay Chess Competition!

The Roland Park Tournament of 2013 was a two-part tournament: January 27 and February 24. Academy at the Lakes top performers of the open portion were Tom X., who placed 4th, and Alex S., who placed 7th.

The participants of this two-part tournament were Kristina S., Alex S., Tom X., Glory G., Romo L., Raj W., Anmol W. and Roshan W. With their combined scores, Roshan W. and Anmol W., as a two-man team, placed fifth in the K-8 division school rankings.

In March the chess team will compete in another tournament. Soon, we’ll need to make room for a trophy case just for our chess team!
