Columbus Chess Team

The National Scholastic Chess Foundation held the Westchester County Chess Championships at Columbus Elementary on March 18, with 14 Columbus students competing in four different grade level competitions.

Five fifth grade Columbus students competed in their grade section and won first place. It was also the third year in a row that this team was recognized as Westchester County Champions for their grade. In 2015, they were first in third grade, in 2016 they won in fourth grade, and this year they won once again in fifth grade.

  The team was also the highest scoring in all grade level competitions.  Ronny Perez led his team, coming in 3rd place, Darren Chen came in 5th place, Luis Jimenez came in 7th place, Leo Liu in 9th place and Estevan Ramos in 10th place.

Five third grade Columbus students competed in the third-grade section, and came in second place.  Gabriela Ceja won top unrated chess player. Also playing for the Columbus team were Evelyn Sanchez, Luis Oliveros, Kevin Lopez and Frida Arenas.

Two second-grade students competed in the second-grade section and won a second-place team award.  Dylan Solovyev and Ignacio Valencia played on the second-grade team.

 Two fourth graders competed in the fourth-grade division and came in fourth place as a team. Evelyn Valencia and Maya Concha played for Columbus in the fourth-grade section.

The Columbus team plans to play again on April 22 at Ward, and on April 29 at Trinity. The team will be competing in the United States Scholastic Chess Super Nationals K-12 in Nashville, Tennessee. The event will be held from May 12 to May 14 (News from Our Schools 3/31).
