On Saturday, Oct. 20, Bateman hosted its annual Chess Invitational. Nearly 70 students from six other schools joined 20 Bateman players in the Bateman auditorium for five rounds of competitive chess. The Bateman 5th-8th grade team placed second with some great chess games played by many of our players. In the Advanced section, Chris S. and Andrew T. earned individual honors. Skinner North Elementary has proven itself a chess powerhouse sweeping the three sections.
Many Bateman staff members and families helped to organize and run a full day of chess activities. This tournament serves as a preseason event, and now that the afternoon Chess Club and morning Chess All-Stars are up and running, look out for more updates from the Bateman Chess Team.
