The following students also participated in the Omaha Central Chess Tournament Saturday, November 17th: Isabella Medrano, Lauren Schmitz, Nathan Schmitz, Anisa Lucia, Katie Goetz, Jacob Goetz. We are very proud of everyone.
Also, congratulations to our neighbor, Fairview Elementary who took home 1st place as a team for the tournament. That is quite an accomplishment. Our coach, Mr. Kim, also coaches at Fairview. We are really happy for that school and their players. We hope to have a friendly chess tournament in the future against Fairview.
