Congratulations to Coach Mr. Byrd and the SCA Chess Team for winning state at the GICAA State Chess Meet in Greensboro last week! The team competed in a field of ten teams from throughout the state. What an awesome accomplishment for this being our inaugural year competing in chess!
The winning foursome which included first chair sophomore Charlie Taylor, juniors Nathanael Sancinto and Andrew Sanders, and sophomore Andrew Orr, defeated a very talented team from Horizon Christian School (Cumming). The team has been invited to compete in the statewide (all schools) Chess Championship later this spring.
The entire team competed very well with an astounding eight players making it to the final two rounds. Other members of the SCA Chess Team who competed were Addie Wilson, Jared Guin, Nathan Roberts, Skylar Whiddon, and Reece Letchworth. Congratulations to the SCA Chess Team on bringing home the state trophy!
