CSA Chess Team tournament yeilds
four new trophies


On Dec. 7, the CSA chess team, comprised of:
Jason Hu (6th),
Matthew Nemoto (8th),
Mario Reyes (8th),
Cole Tanner (8th) played valiantly at the T.H. Rogers chess tournament.
All four students won at least three of their five matches, earning them each a trophy. Jason Hu actually won four matches and placed 3rd in his section. The next tournament will be at Spring Forest on Jan. 25. 
We'd love to have an even bigger team, as this is one of the best tournaments of the year. Interested students can talk to Cole Tanner or have their parents contact Jean Tanner at  rapunzelj@hotmail.com .
