Bi-Cultural Day School’s newly-formed travel chess team has earned its first trophies since the team's creation. More than 85 participants competed in the four-match National Scholastic Chess Foundation Grand Prix Tournament, held on January 10 at Carmel Academy. Two Bi-Cultural students placed in their age groups. Second-grader Gabriel Haron received third place as a Primary Novice and third-grader Gidon Genger placed third place in the Reserve category. In addition, Genger recently earned first place in the top section of a chess tournament in New York City, meeting his personal goal of reaching a 2000-point United States Chess Federation rating.
Bi-Cultural’s travel chess winning team meets and practices each week and competes in area chess tournaments.
