MES Wins 2nd Place School Trophy at Roberto Clemente Chess Tournament
Jordan Go (4th Grade), Andy Wu (3rd Grade), Armaan Jain (3rd Grade), and Dhruv Srivastava (2nd Grade) won for Matsunaga Elementary School, the 2nd place School Trophy at the Roberto Clemente Classic Chess Tournament on Saturday, 4/1/17. 

Andy won 4 out of 4 games in the Under 400 Category and received a 1st place Individual trophy.  Jordan won 3 out of 4 games in the Under 700 Intermediate Category and received a 3rd place Individual trophy.  The competition was open to K-8th grade students and the pairings were based on their USCF (US Chess Federation) ratings.  The boys had to play against elementary grade, as well as middle school-aged kids who were within the same USCF rating as they were!  They all did a great job playing their very best.
