GCAA Chess Team Brings Home More Hardware

Over the weekend, four members of the GCAA Chess Team played in the Girls' National Chess Championships in Northbrook, Illinois. Competing in (6) three-hours rounds over three days, the group - Isabel Brieler, Sophie Brieler, Mila Schmidt, and Lillian Selligman - won the fourth place trophy in the Under 14 Division of the tournament. This is the culmination of a very successful season under the leadership of coach Jay Brieler. Since October, the team has brought home 8 trophies, including (3) 1st place awards, 3rd place at State, and this new national honor. We look forward to continuing to build a winning chess tradition at GCAA. [Article by Lisa Selligman]
