*News on the West Chess Team:  We had our first tournament with 5 kids participating in the International Academy of Chess' Fall Extravaganza! 

Jack Buswell led the team, with Tansen Mehta, Felix Leung, Dominic Leung and Parke Goldstein providing strong support for an impressive 1st time showing in a tough Midwest tournament. A special call out to Parke as this was his very first rated tournament.

The chess team also includes: Ryan Huey, Skyelar Kuo, Dominic Matar, Ara Mikaelian, Cole Sellers, and Riley Shih, . The team will be competing in their first school competition this Saturday across the country to Virginia.
