25 Spicewood Elementary students participated in this past weekend’s Kealing Middle School Chess Tournament. Sixteen local elementary schools participated. The tournament consisted of 5 rounds of games each worth 1 point. In total, our kids scored a total of 53 out of a possible 125 points. Four Spicewood students received trophies for scoring in the top percentile of their groups: Rounav Sur (K-1 U300 1st place), Aria Mitra (K-1 U300 3rd place), Yifan Qiu (K-1 U300 4th place) and Peter Kim (K-5 U600 3rd place). Five Spicewood students received medals for scoring in the second percentile of their groups: Noah Cush, Leon Chen, Ethan Fung, Bela Jere and Ethan Yang.
Our club came in 2nd place in the K-3 Reserve team results, 5th place in the K-5 Reserve team results and 4th place in the K-12 Championship team results. Canyon Vista Middle School took 1st place in the K-12 Championship team results lead by Eric Gao who is a Spicewood Elementary Alumni.
