State Championships

2019 Wisconsin Scholastic Chess Championship

The MSCC took 12 players this year up to the UW Oshkosh campus for the annual event - the biggest in the state each year and a highlight to the end of our regular season

This is a great event - nearly 400 players from around the state competing in K5, K8, JV and Varsity (D1-3) divisions.  The players work very hard for two days, playing 5 or 6 rounds (depending on division) with games lasting up to 2 and 3 hours each, in very competitive sections

This year Anthony and Rishi played in this section of about 70 players, finishing w/ 3 and 4 wins respectively.

Josh and Milos (first tournament!) were a team for Muskego Lakes.  Josh led the way with 3 wins

Andy, Luke and Steven were a team for Lake Denoon and had 4, 2.5 and 4 wins respectively.  The team took a 6th place team trophy - well done!

Will, Alyssa, Noah, David and Aaron were the varsity team for Muskego High School in the D1 section.  These are 5 vs. 5 team matches and it's very competitive.  They got some individual wins in almost every round - we were very proud of the games they played at this level.

Special thanks to Coach Andy of the IAC who coached our players and reviewed notation with them the whole weekend!
