SMCA Opener

SMCA Opener Results 

Our high school team also belongs to the SMCA (Scenic Moraine Chess Association) and we had our opening season even this past Saturday, hosted by Brookfield East.

Congratulations to the Varsity team of Will, Alyssa, Adam, David and Aaron for playing some good matches against some tough opponents.  These are 5 vs. 5 (our top 5 against opponents top 5), G60 matches, and we beat Hartford and New Berlin West, and lost to Brookfield East.

Noah joined the JV section and took 3 out of 4 and finished in 12th place overall!

We will play Eisenhower in January, and finish against Kewaskum, Brookfield Academy and Jefferson in February.  Anyone in our club 7th grade and up is welcome to play.

Possible Apparel Order in January

Hi All,

I've been getting questions about doing another Apparel Order. If that happens, it'll be in January & will be back in time for State (March). The Vendor would like a minimum of 12 orders for screen print (t-shirt, sweatshirt, etc.) & there's no minimum for embroidered orders.

If you'd like to order, please let me know so I can have an idea of I get 12 items/orders.

Thank you.

USM

USM / IAC Tournament 

First tournament for the chess club this year - MSCC brought 11 players to the tournament today that was run by Coach Andy and we had a great time! There were 104 players in all.

The K3 section was combined w/ K6  to make a bigger section, making it tougher for Lexi but she did great and took K3 6th place.

Luke & Andy combined for LDMS, Anthony played up to K6 for BL, and Rishi played in K6.  Lucas played in unrated K6.  All had their ups and downs but had some really great wins!

In the K12 section Steven played for BL and Alyssa, Aaron, Adam and Will were the MHS team and took 3rd place!  Will took 6th place individual!

Nice job to all, looking forward to the Muskego Melee on Dec 1st!
