The chess club participated in the Casis Elementary chess tournament held on January 30th, 2016. The tournament had over 400 participants and we had 48 students from Spicewood attend. (12% were from Spicewood!) Our students did great winning two 1st place and three 2nd place team trophies. Individual awards were given to 11 students who won trophies and 16 students who won medals for their performances. We had quite a few new students do well who have only been playing chess since September. The students worked really hard the last few months and it paid off. Great job Spicewood students!
