On Sat. Dec. 3, the Bateman chess team competed in the Chicago Scholastic Chess League team tournament at Taft High School. We had three 5-person teams playing. The top Junior High team, nicknamed “Bateman Blue” won their section with a perfect 4-0 score. They were led by Umair Ahmed on board 1, Esteban Taboada on board 2, Leonard Rionaula on board 3, Layla Rodriguez on board 4, and Jim Nguyen on board 5. Among the five players, they only lost one of their 20 games!
