TCR Students Create Chess Team and Win

TCR Students Create Chess Team and Win
Posted on 04/01/2019
Say hello to the TCR student-led, student-organized team of 13 students that took first place this weekend in the State Chess Tournament in Charlotte.  Playing two full days of chess and demonstrating amazing  team camaraderie, these high school students are to be commended. 

After playing together in the after school program led by Master Harris at ACES, Koontz, and VSMS for years, these young people took the initiative to create a team despite there being no organized instruction at the high school.  They spread the word, met on Saturdays and walked over to join the instruction at Valley Springs Middle School on Thursdays. Never has there been such a large TCR representation in the last 10 years, not to mention their first team win. We are proud of these self-starting Rams!
