WSCF McKinley Results
The MSCC brought a great group of 11 players to the WSCF tournament at McKinley school in Wauwatosa this past weekend. Many of you will know the coach of the McKinley chess club - Mark Seghers - as the founder of our own chess club back when his kids were at Mill Valley.
It was a well run event (first time for McKinley) with over 100 players!
In this division we had one 'veteran' with Anthony and 3 new players - brother/sister duo Lucas and Lexi, and Riahn, who could only stay for a couple of rounds. Anthony let the way with a fantastic 5 win/no loss day and took first place! Lucas also had a great day of 4 wins/ 5th place finish and earned his red wrist band, and Lexi was right behind w/ 3 wins, really great for the first time!
The team took 2nd place which was awesome, considering the very large team that McKinley brought.
Most of our players were in this division, including Rishi, Josh, Cael, Carson, Sarah and Nate. Cael let the way with 3 wins and a 10th place finish and Rishi was close behind, also with 3 wins.
Together the team took 3rd place!
Steven was our lone player in the K12 divsion and played well, with only 2 losses.
We will be "off" as far as tournaments go for the next weekend, and then back on the 24th at both WSCF / Golda Meir and IAC /ASA Clark. Let's get some teams!
