Congratulations to Christian Kavouras and Brian
Lehman, Northside's freshman representatives at
the Illinois All-Grade Chess Championship, who
won the 3rd place team trophy for Northside in
the 9th grade division with 5.5 total points.
Christian Kavouras also won the 2nd place
individual trophy for 9th graders with 3.5
points out of 4. Congratulations Christian!
Northside sophomore Alex Bologna also
competed in the 10th grade division. Lehman
and Bologna both scored 2 points, and did so
against the toughest possible competition.
Both won their first two games, which meant
they had to face some of the top ranked
players in their grades the last two games.
The tournament was held November 13th at
Whitney Young. Next up for the entire
varsity and JV Northside chess team is the
biggest Chicago high school chess
competition of the fall: the Prep Bowl this
Saturday, November 20th at the Illinois
Institute of Technology (IIT).
