Gavin is the official “2019 Pinnacle Chess Champion…of the World”

Congratulations to Gavin for winning our first ever chess tournament! Gavin and James competed in our final match today with Gavin taking the win and it was an incredible game!



I was absolutely blown away by the amount of students that signed up for the tournament (21 third – sixth graders) and gave it their best shot! We had students who have only played a handful of times sign up and I could not be prouder of the bravery, sportsmanship, and leadership I saw throughout the tournament.

I cannot wait until next years’ match! I would also like to give a special shoutout to the students in my Chess Club as I am so proud of how far you have all come. Chess Club truly was one of the best parts of my week!
