Over the weekend of March 11, 20 Browning chess players competed in the NY State Chess Championship in Saratoga Springs. One of our second grade boys is the 2017 NY State Individual Primary Reserve Champion, having led his team to first place ahead of 23 competing schools! A Pre-primary boy took home a trophy for second place in his division.
Our Middle School reserve team finished in third place, while our JHS Championship team finished sixth. Congratulation to the boys and to John Kennedy, chess director!
