Chess club experiences success at tournament

BV took third place overall at the annual Blue Valley Chess Classic on Saturday Nov. 7.
More than one hundred chess players competed in the tournament ranging in three categories: K-3, K-6, and K-12.
Senior Henry Chan placed 19th, sophomore Spencer Ho placed 21st, and junior Jennifer Lester placed 25th. Also competing in the competition were BV students junior Jesse Hartl, senior Brady Jerome, and sophomores Matt Coole and Carlos Cheung.
Supervisor Richard Gill said the club is working hard to get better each practice and hopes that will carry over to the competitions.
“We’re at the point where we’ve got people winning three games,” Gill said. “We just need to get to the point where they’re winning four.”
