Checkmate

On Saturday Zach competed in Academy District 20's annual chess tournament.  He has loved being in his school's chess club this year and was happy to earn a spot in the tournament.  I was pleased to spend the day supporting my boy.


Zach's nerves almost got the best of him before the competition began, but he ended up having a great time.  He played five chess matches.  He won two, lost two, and had one tie.



Final rankings weren't posted before we left, but after the fourth round he was 15th among fourth graders.


Last year Zach was too nervous to play in the tournament, so we are very proud of him for conquering a fear and doing his best.


Way to go, buddy!
