Queen City Classic 2018

Hello Everyone!

Positive Chess, the Bethany School chess team, recently went to the annual Queen City Classic Chess Tournament.  We had a solid performance.  All our players score 3 point or above out of a possible 5 points.  Our 5th grade team placed 4th place out of 22 teams. (1 point away from getting a team trophy)  Our 6th grade team (with only 2 players instead of 3) place 6th out of 17 teams.  With one of our players Kaeden placing 2nd in his section out of 72 player!

It was an awesome event, we are improving every year and expect to do even better next year!
