South Bronx, South South Bronx!
Many big wins at this weekend's tournament at IS 390 in the Bronx! Luis Hernandez, a smaller version of 5th grader Miguel Hernandez, won all of his games and tied for 1st place in the NRB section. Joshua Valle (Rookie) and Kevin Li (Novice) both won 1st Place on their section. Joey Zhang trailed Joshua winning 2nd Place Rookie section.
As a team we tied for 1st in Rookie and won 1st outright in Novice.
Last, but definitely not least, our strongest team won 2nd Place in the Open Section just behind chess juggernauts IS 318. These players have been on the team since 1st or 2nd Grade and its amazing to see their growth and to see them compete on such a high level.
