WI Lutheran HS

Wisconsin Lutheran High School Tournament 

We had a nice turnout on Saturday for this first ever event at the this high school, which was run by Mr. Andy and the IAC.

About 80 players participated and our MSCC brought 11.

K12 unrated

  • Brothers Grant & Brody played well, finishing w/ 2-1/2 and 3 wins 
K3 / K6
  • There were not enough players in the K3 section so it was combined w/ K6, but that didn't deter Anthony who had a good day with 3 wins and a second place K3 finish!
  • In K6, Rishi also had a good day with 3 wins and a 12 place finish.
  • For the Lake Denoon team of Luke, Logan and Andy, Logan led the way with 4 wins and a 5th place finish.  The team took 3rd place with only 3 members!
  • Steven was the only player from BL in this tough division, but played some nice matches.
  • The MHS team of Alyssa, Adam and Will played very well, with Adam taking 6th place and Will taking 3rd place, both with 3 wins (out of 4).  This team of only 3 members took 1st place team!
Everybody did a great job of taking notation at the tournament which let the coaches and other players review a lot of the games in between rounds.

Next up - Discovery World Feb 3rd, and McKinley Feb 10th.
