Saratoga Success: Chessmates At the New York State Tournament 

The PS11 chess team fielded 19 players across different sections, for many of whom it was their first State Championship. While we lacked team trophies, we more than made up for it in team spirit.  In individual honors, Avaan placed third in the Primary Championship section and Meera was second in the U800 section. The Chessmates are going strong, watch out Nationals!
