First things first! Yesterday, the team competed in the Gateway Team Tournament at Pattonville High School. This is really two tournaments in one: the Team section pits teams of 5 students against each other head-to-head. Wins and losses are determined on the basis of the weighted scores of individual players. The 9th & under Team won the division, and each of the 5 players also brought home an individual trophy for the competition on their individual board. Members of the team included Mila Schmidt, Board 5 First Place; Gabe Gibert, Board 4 Second Place; Lillian Selligman, Board 3 Second Place; Chris Corriveau, Board 2 First Place; and Sophie Brieler, Board 1, Second place. We also fielded a number of players in the Individual Section of the Tournament: Marlana Brueggemann, Eva Miller, Joseph Miller and Katlyn Miller all played. Tenth Grader Kyree Hamilton received a medal for his 3/4 performance.
