At the CPS Chess north-side playoffs, the Bateman Chess Team placed in the top 2 in three different sections. The 3rd/4th grade and 7th/8th grade squads both earned 2nd place, while the 5th/6th grade group took 1st overall. The team had seven different players with at least 4 points in 5 long rounds, led by the Ahmed brothers, Umair & Zubair, Luke Rosado, Andrew Tebbe, and (on his birthday) Jim Nguyen. Bateman is now qualified for the City Championships, and will field a team in 3 sections at next weekend's State Championships in Schaumburg.
