This past Monday, the winter session ended at Shongum Elementary School for the after school chess program, conducted by Enrich and Grow Academy and taught by me. The spring session begins next Monday.
A tournament, involving 22 students, was held during the last three weeks of the winter session. Medals were given for first, second, and third places.
With three points apiece, Jesse Lissaur and David Popkin tied for first place.
Four students tied for third place, with 2 points: Nicolas Alvarado, Christopher Civetta, Varsha Thampi, and Benjamin Weiss. On tie-breaks, third place was awarded to Christopher Civetta.
