Congratulations to our players and grade-level teams for their recent tournament success! At the last CCF tournament in January, the K-4 Novice team earned a 1st place trophy, while the K-6 Novice team also got an award with a 2nd place finish. At the Greater Chicago Championships at the beginning of this month, the K-3 and K-9 Reserve teams both earned 1st place honors. There were several individual awards as well. This is great momentum for the upcoming championship season in March and April.
Sincerely, Mr. Geisler
