Tourney at Washington Avenue School

[mural by art teacher Kenji Hasegawa]

On Monday afternoon, the fall 2014 session ended at Washington Avenue School, in the after school enrichment class on chess, coached by me on behalf of Enrich and Grow Academy.

The tournament finished in a tie for first and second places between Alexander Coutras and Liam Kirby. When their playoff match was drawn, the two were declared co-winners of the tournament. Third place went to Lily Hekmat, who won her playoff game against Noah Gicas.

The top three players received trophies, in addition to the chess medals that were awarded to all ten students.
