On Sunday, January 6, 2019, two grade 1 students came in 2nd place and two Middle School students came in 3rd at the Seattle Prep Classic Chess Tournament at Seattle Preparatory School. All games were Northwest or US Chess rated, and controlled at times of 25 minutes with 5-second delays. The 5-round Swiss tournament, broken up into six sections—K-1, 2-3, K-3 Open, 4-8, 4-8 Open, and 9-12 Open—also served as the WA Elementary State Qualifier.
Chess is part of SCDS's Extended Day program and Coach Lori and Coach Leo congratulated these students for their "outstanding chess play."
