STEVENSON HIGH SCHOOL FINISHES 2nd AT STATE

The Stevenson Chess Team finished the 2010 IHSA State Chess Team Tournament with a record of 6-1, with tie-breaker points earning them the 2nd Place trophy. Niles North (another North Suburban Chess League -NSCL- team) captured the State Championship with a 7-0 record.  This is the 7th consecutive year that Stevenson has finished in the top 6 at the state tournament, including a State Championship 2 years ago.  Stevenson's only loss was to the number one seed Whitney Young High School.

In addition to the team trophy and 2nd place player medals for each team member, freshman Matt Yang won the first place medal on Board 3,  senior Scott O'Connor tied for 10th place on Board 4,  senior Peter Karalis finished in first place on Board 6, and senior Victor Zhou finished in 9th place on Board 8.  Other team members were Josh Dubin, Kent Cen, Adele Padgett, Corbin Rudnick, with alternates Saieesh Rao and Vishish Verma.   Sophomore Josh Dubin won a special award as one of the highest rated high school chess player in Illinois.   The Stevenson team is coached by Rob Krause, with Scott Oliver club sponsor.
