Winter Chess Championship

Strategy and finesse

In January, one of Academy Schools’ own joined a slew of other student chess aficionados at the Washington State High School Individual Championship at Lakeside Upper School in Seattle for two days of rigorous timed (Double Swiss) play. Jack gave it his all, played 10 games over two days, and earned 12th place in the Individual Championship Section Reserve category.

Everyone at Academy Schools is so proud of Jack! He proved his skill and determination – and represented his school well. Congratulations, Jack!
