RISE Hamilton chess Places 9th in u/900 and 11th in u/700 at K-8 Nationals in Atlanta 2024!

Congrats to the 10 players who traveled to represent 
Hamilton at the 2024 K-8 National Chess Championship in Atlanta! We had 2 teams in different sections, highlighting the growth in our program. The u/900 team of Aaron, Joshua, Sherlyn, Xiomara, and Kriss placed 9th overall while the u/700 team of Orlando, Cris M., Angela, Ivan, and Edwin placed 11th. Big shoutout to Orlando for his overall individual medal, placing 30th. There were so many individual instances of growth over the 3 days of the tournament, and it was great to see these kids have these experiences and learn things that will benefit them in many other areas of their life. Amazing performance by our team!
