Girl Power! We are national champs!

Girl Power! We are National Champs!

It is with great pride that we congratulate our PS 11 girls on claiming the U 12 National Championship Runner-up this past weekend in Chicago. This is the highest National title we have attained as a team with only three kids able to make it because of bad weather. We did better than schools with much higher rated players. Yes Chelsea Chessmates our Girls Team is the second best in the whole country!  A fantastic job by fifth graders Audrey, Anya and Amy. These girls are a true inspiration for all our other upcoming players who will carry on their legacy. A huge thank you to Mr Fier, Coach Russ, Coach Aaron, Coach Angel and the ICN team for building this amazing Chess team!
