On the weekend of April 6-8, one of the Bateman chess players had an incredible weekend! 8th grader Layla Rodriguez played in her final Jr. High National Championship as a Bateman player. In three days of intense competition, Layla did not lose a game in seven rounds, with a score of 5.5 and finishing in 7th place in her section, out of 162 players from across the country.
Mr. Geisler even had time to squeeze in a few rounds in the Friends and Family side tournament on Saturday. They combined his score with Layla’s and together they claimed the 1st place prize in the Coach/Player section!
Bateman is very proud of Layla for her performance at this tournament and for all of the great chess she has played under the Bateman banner over the years. Congratulations Layla!
