South Regional Chess Tournament Report !!!

The South Regional Chess Tournament last Saturday hosted by the Title I Administration was a total success. There were a total of 390 students competing from more than 30 Schools. As usual it was very well organized and the kids, parents and Chess Teachers had a great time. The McMillan Chess Team got 3rd place missing 2nd place by just 1.5 points. 1st and 2nd places were for Rockway and Shenandoah respectively so Congratulations to all of them!!! The best ten teams per category were invited to compete at the District Championship on May 4th so the McMillan Chess Team will be present hoping to be within the best 5 teams of the County.

Here I am sharing some pictures of the Tournament.
